Aeolian Lullaby


Go to sleepy baby,
Loo loo loo loo loo
Close your eyes and go to sleep
While I sing to you.

This song lends itself to a simple bordun, which can be done by the younger grades.

Long sounds can be demonstrated by playing a metallophone or glockenspiel and compare it to a xylophone. Ask, “Which instrument makes a long sound?”
