Working with instrumental only tracks

Thinking about what is biorhythmically appropriate for children…

I like tracks that suggest skipping, galloping and side sliding as ways to locomote, as opposed to running or walking.

When we do Travelers and the Magic Forest (from AlphaBeat) it just feels so good for locomotion with the swing-feel of skip, gallop and side slide. It’s uplifting.

From the new version of Step on the Beat:

I’ve been playing Clap Along Song and Apples and Oranges (Instrumental Only = IO) for Shape Museums.

Shape Maker/Shape Explorer (IO) for resting, for blind mirror, sculptor and clay.

Other resting tracks….

Brain Bop tracks 13 and 14.

Eric Chappelle’s Contrast and Continuum Volume 3 #17

James Galway Nocturne
