“DO_RE_MI”

Let´s start at the very beginning

A very good place to start

When you read you begin with A-be-see

When you sing you begin with do-re-mi

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi

The first three notes just happen to be

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti

Let´s see if I can make it easy

Doe, a deer, a female deer

Ray, a drop of golden sun

Me, a name I call myself

Far, a long, long way to run

Sew, a needle pulling thread

La, a note to follow Sew

Tea, a drink with jam and bread

That will bring us back to Do (oh-oh-oh)

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do

So-do!

Now children, do-re-mi-fa-so and so on

are only the tools we use to build a song

Once you have these notes in your heads

you can sing a million different tunes by mixing them up

Like this

So Do La Fa Mi Do Re

Can you do that?

So Do La Fa Mi Do Re

So Do La Ti Do Re Do

So Do La Ti Do Re Do

Now, put it all together

So Do La Fa Mi Do Re, So Do La Ti Do Re Do

Good!

But it doesn´t mean anything

So we put in words

One word for every note

Like this

When you know the notes to sing

You can sing most anything

Together!

When you know the notes to sing

You can sing most anything

Doe, a deer, a female deer

Ray, a drop of golden sun

Me, a name I call myself

Far, a long, long way to run

Sew, a needle pulling thread

La, a note to follow Sew

Tea, a drink with jam and bread

That will bring us back to Do

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do

Do Ti La So Fa Mi Re

Do Mi Mi

Mi So So

Re Fa Fa

La Ti Ti

When you know the notes to sing

You can sing most anything

Doe, a deer, a female deer

Ray, a drop of golden sun

Me, a name I call myself

Far, a long, long way to run

Sew, a needle pulling thread

La, a note to follow Sew

Tea, a drink with jam and bread

That will bring us back to

Do So Do

Re La Fa

Mi Mi Do

Fa Re

So So Do

La La Fa

Ti La So Fa Mi Re

Ti Do oh oh Ti Do So Do


“How Far I'll Go”

I've been staring at the edge of the water

'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why

I wish I could be the perfect daughter

But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track

Every path I make, every road leads back

To the place I know, where I can not go, where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me

And no one knows, how far it goes

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go

I know everybody on this island, seems so happy on this island

Everything is by design

I know everybody on this island has a role on this island

So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong

I'll be satisfied if I play along

But the voice inside sings a different song

What is wrong with me?

See the light as it shines on the sea? It's blinding

But no one knows, how deep it goes

And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me

And let me know, what's beyond that line, will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me

And no one knows, how far it goes

If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me

One day I'll know, how far I'll go

“Let's Get Together”

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah

Why don't you and I combi-ine

Let's get together, what do you say

We can have a swingin' ti-ime

We'd be a cra-a-azy team

Why don't we ma-a-ake a scene

Together, oh oh oh oh

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah

Think of all that we could sha-are

Let's get together everyday

Every way and everywhere

And though we haven't got a lot

We could be sharin' all we've got

Together

Oh, I really think you're swell

Uh-huh, we really ring the bell

Oo-wee, and if you stick with me

Nothing could be greater, say hey alligat-ah!

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah

Two is twice as nice as one

Let's get together right away

We'll be having twice the fun

And you can always count on me

A gruesome twosome we will be

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah!

“My Favorite Things”

Raindrops on roses

And whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells

And schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver-white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad (Repeat 3X)

“Let It Go”

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight

Not a footprint to be seen

A kingdom of isolation

And it looks like I'm the queen

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside

Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried

Don't let them in, don't let them see

Be the good girl you always have to be

Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know

Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn away and slam the door

I don't care what they're going to say

Let the storm rage on

The cold never bothered me anyway

Let it go, let it go

Can't hold it back anymore

Let it go, let it go

Turn away and slam the door

Let it go

(go, go, go go, go go, go go, go, go, go go)

Let it go, Let it go, Let it go

It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small

And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all

It's time to see what I can do

To test the limits and break through

No right, no wrong, no rules for me

I'm free

Let it go, let it go

I am one with the wind and sky

Let it go, let it go

You'll never see me cry

Here I stand and here I stay

Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground

My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around

And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast

I'm never going back, the past is in the past

Let it go

The cold never bothered me anyway

Let it go, let it go

And I'll rise like the break of dawn

Let it go, let it go

That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand in the light of day

Let the storm rage on

“Can’t Stop The Feeling”

[Verse 1]

I got this feeling inside my bones

It goes electric, wavey when I turn it on

All through my city, all through my home

We're flying up, no ceiling, when we in our zone


[Refrain]

I got that sunshine in my pocket

Got that good soul in my feet

I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops

I can't take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

Room on lock, the way we rock it, so don't stop


[Pre-Chorus]

And under the lights when everything goes

Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close

When we move, well, you already know

So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine


[Chorus]

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

A feeling good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

All those things I shouldn't do

But you dance, dance, dance

And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

I can't stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can't stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance (Come on)



[Verse 2]

Ooh, it's something magical

It's in the air, it's in my blood, it's rushing on

I don't need no reason, don't need control

I fly so high, no ceiling, when I'm in my zone


[Refrain]

'Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket

Got that good soul in my feet

I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops

I can't take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

Room on lock, the way we rock it, so don't stop


[Pre-Chorus]

And under the lights when everything goes

Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close

When we move, well, you already know

So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine


[Chorus]

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

A feeling good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

All those things I shouldn't do

But you dance, dance, dance

And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

I can't stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can't stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance (Come on)

I can't stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can't stop the feeling

So keep dancing (Come on)



[Bridge]

I can't stop the, I can't stop the

I can't stop the, I can't stop the

I can't stop the feeling


[Chorus]

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

(I can't stop the feeling)

Feeling good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

(I can't stop the feeling)

All those things I shouldn't do

But you dance, dance, dance

(I can't stop the feeling)

And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing


[Outro]

Everybody sing

(I can't stop the feeling)

Got this feeling in my body

(I can't stop the feeling)

Got this feeling in my body

(I can't stop the feeling)

Wanna see you move your body

(I can't stop the feeling)

Got this feeling in my body, come on

Break it down

Got this feeling in my body

Can't stop the feeling

Got this feeling in my body, come on

Happy

It might seem crazy what I'm 'bout to say

Sunshine she's here, you can take a break

I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space

With the air, like I don't care baby by the way

Huh, because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you know what happiness is to you

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Here come bad news, talking this and that

(Yeah) Well, give me all you got, and don't hold it back

(Yeah) Well, I should probably warn you I'll be just fine

(Yeah) No offense to you, don't waste your time

Here's why

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you know what happiness is to you

Because I'm happy

Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Hey, come on, uh

The lyrics of the songs to the annual DWS

Winter Holiday Program for Grades 1-2:


All Students: "THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG "

I pledge allegiance to the Flag

Of the United States of America,

And to the Republic for which it stands:

One Nation under God, indivisible,

With Liberty and Justice for all.

All Students: "THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER"

Oh, say can you see,

By the dawn's early light,

What so proudly we hailed

At the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars,

Through the perilous fight,

O'er the ramparts we watched,

Were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets' red glare,

The bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night

That our flag was still there

O say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free

and the home of the brave!


Opening All Students: “IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR”

It's the most wonderful time of the year

With the kids jingle belling

And everyone telling you

"Be of good cheer"

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

It's the hap - happiest season of all

With those holiday greetings

And gay, happy meetings

When friends come to call,

It's the hap - happiest season of all.

There'll be parties for hosting,

Marshmallows for toasting,

And caroling out in the snow

There'll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories of

Christmases long, long ago.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

There'll be mistle-toeing,

And hearts will be glowing

When loved ones are near.

It's the most wonderful time,

It's the most wonderful time,

It's the most wonderful time of the year!



Gonzalez/Phipplips/Fucarino:

“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen

But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

Had a very shiny nose.

And if you ever saw him,

You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer

Used to laugh and call him names.

They never let poor Rudolph

Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say:

"Rudolph with your nose so bright,

Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

You'll go down in history!

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say:

"Rudolph with your nose so bright,

Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

You'll go down in history!

You'll go down in his-to-ry!


Ocampo/Gayle:

“Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we've no place to go,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,

And I've bought some corn for popping,

The lights are turned way down low,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,

How I'll hate going out in the storm!

But if you'll really hold me tight,

All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,

And, my dear, we're still good-byeing,

But as long as you love me so,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,

How I'll hate going out in the storm!

But if you'll really hold me tight,

All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,

And, my dear, we're still good-byeing,

But as long as you love me so,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!


Annese/Yankauskas:

“Frosty The Snowman”

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,

With a corncob pipe and a button nose

And two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,

He was made of snow but the children know

How he came to life one day.

There must have been some magic in that

Old silk hat they found.

For when they placed it on his head

He began to dance around.

O, Frosty the snowman

Was alive as he could be,

And the children say he could laugh

And play just the same as you and me.

Frosty the snowman knew

The sun was hot that day,

So he said, "Let's run and

We'll have some fun

Now before I melt away."

Down to the village,

With a broomstick in his hand,

Running here and there all

Around the square saying,

Catch me if you can.

He led them down the streets of town

Right to the traffic cop.

And he only paused a moment when

He heard him holler, "Stop!"

For Frosty the Snowman

Had to hurry on his way,

But he waved goodbye saying, "Don't you cry,

I'll be back again some day."

Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump,

Look at Frosty go.

Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump,

Over the hills of snow.


Menduke/Mongelli/Petruzella:

“Deck the Hall”

Deck the hall with boughs of holly,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

‘Tis the season to by jolly,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Troll the ancient Yuletide carol,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.


See the blazing Yule before us,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Strike the harp and join the chorus.

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Follow me in merry measure,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

While I tell of Yuletide treasure,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.


Fast away the old year passes,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Sing we joyous, all together,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Heedless of the wind and weather,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la,

Fa la la la la la, la la la la,

Fa la la la la la, la la-la-la!


Pasquale/Guzman/Ingram:

“Jingle Bell Rock”

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring

Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun

Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock

Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time

Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square

In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time

To rock the night away

Jingle bell time is a swell time

To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet

Jingle around the clock

Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet

That's the jingle bell rock

What a bright time, it's the right time

To rock the night away

Jingle bell time is a swell time

To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet

Jingle around the clock

Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet

That's the jingle bell,

That's the jingle bell,

That's the jingle bell rock!

The music students will demonstrate the ability to learn the joy of listening, making, and sharing music together at the earliest age possible while learning the fundamentals of music. To teach the students that anyone can learn the art of performing in public and reach their performing and artistic goals first they will learn good attending skills, self-confidence, the love and passion for the arts, the desire to perform, the discipline to listen, the moral support at home to reinforce music appreciation, and the will to practice the different skills required to be a great student in school and not just during music classes. Please remember that REPETITION is one of the most important ways to learn! Always have fun and enjoy singing, dancing, playing instruments, reading and writing music, and finally creating original music in general!

At Daniel Webster School the main objective is to teach every student in grades Pre-K through second the fundamentals of music, dance, and the performing arts. Each grade level learns through a sequenced curriculum and by performing in various live programs. The students learn to use their singing voices (falsetto), learn to move their bodies to different rhythms, and learn the basics of the universal language of music. For example, they learn musical notation, music appreciation, theory, etc. The goal is to learn to make music, share the music, perform in public, and have fun doing it!

“DWS Concert Chorus Auditions Information!”

Dear Parents/Guardians in Grades 1-2 currently attending DWS,

Attached you will find a choir consent form that has to be filled out, signed, and return to Mr. Romano ASAP for the students that are interested and have a desire to try out for the 2018-19 DWS Concert Choir! The auditions will take place during September and October. The student volunteers have to sing and perform songs a cappella all by themselves in front of their peers. The songs are, “America,” “America The Beautiful,” “God Bless America,” for first graders and “The Star-Spangled Banner,” for second grade students.

There are always an overwhelming number of students who audition for the ensemble. Please remember that many students will not be selected because the choral group consists of only forty students as mandated by the principal. All of the participants have to be congratulated in advance for trying out, practicing, and for being a true performer.

The students who are selected to the chorus need sign the Media Release Forms in order to be filmed on video and still photos for school related purposes only. They also will have to make up any classroom work missed during rehearsals once per week. They have to be excellent students because academics are most important, be responsible students, and maintain an excellent attendance record for all performances and practices during school. The members must wear the proper attire to all of the concerts: plain white tops/shirts, black pants/skirts, dark shoes, and no sneakers please?

IMPORTANT NOTICE: All of the students attending DWS in grades 1 and 2 are required to bring in a one-subject notebook for music classes. All of the students in grades 1-2 will be performing during the Winter Program in December of 2018 in the Gym/Theatre during school hours. Everyone, parents, guardians, family, and friends, are all cordially invited to this wonderful Annual Event!

If you have any questions, comments, and concerns, please contact me ASAP. Thank you very much for your patience and kind understanding! Respectfully

Mr. Piero Romano

PATRIOTIC SONGS

"THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG "

I pledge allegiance to the Flag

Of the United States of America,

And to the Republic for which it stands:

One Nation under God, indivisible,

With Liberty and Justice for all.


“AMERICA”

My country 'tis of thee

Sweet land of liberty of thee I sing

Land where my fathers died

Land of the pilgrim's pride

From every mountain side

Let freedom ring!


"AMERICA, THE BEAUTIFUL"

O beautiful for spacious skies,

For amber waves of grain,

For purple mountain majesties

Above the fruited plain!

America! America!

God shed his grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea!


“GOD BLESS AMERICA”

Add Lib. "While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,

Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,

Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,

As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer."

Chorus: God Bless America, Land that I love.

Stand beside her, and guide her

Through the night with a light from above

From the mountains, through the prairies,

To the oceans, white with foam

God bless America, My home sweet home.

God bless America, My home sweet home.


"THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER"

Oh, say can you see,

By the dawn's early light,

What so proudly we hailed

At the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars,

Through the perilous fight,

O'er the ramparts we watched,

Were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets' red glare,

The bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night

That our flag was still there

O say, does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free

And the home of the brave.
