Shape Song Swingalong, an Illustrated Song

Posted on: June 26, 2017

It took me a while to put the instrumental in the right key for my voice for singing  SHAPE SONG SWINGALONG and to learn it (a little tricky), but the outcome was well worth the effort.  This is a joyous song with lots of inspiration for kids to make art.  The song introduces the idea (Ed Emberley would love this) that if you know a few basic shapes you can make lots of pictures.  Kinda makes the song sound like the Do Re Mi of drawing songs.  Well, I’d say it is!
