ATTENTION preschool teachers, primary teachers, daycare workers, allied health professionals or anyone conducting group music for children!

Here’s a simple arrangement to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star using 8 coloured bells. A very effective way to encourage social skills of playing, waiting, turn taking, listening, awareness of self and others. Show them that although each part is simple, when they work together as a group, they can make beautiful music!!


What you need:

  • A set of 8 bells (an octave) – If your bells are labelled with letters C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C – then start with the higher C (that is C5). If your bells have numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 – start with number 8 and make your way down to 1.
  • A group of children. If you have more than 8, ask the others to do the actions to the song!

Note: The arrangement is displayed at the end of the clip.
