Music Class at Home

Dear Fourth, Fifth and Sixth graders,

I miss you already!!!! We still have a Spring concert to prepare for on May 14th. I have no plans to cancel it so we have a challenge. How prepared can we be to give our parents and awesome concert? I think you will be confident singers if you spend a few minutes each day listening and singing along to our songs. You already know “Tradition” pretty well and “If I Were A Rich Man “. So in-between Math and ELA take a break and listen to one of the following songs. Sing along! Knowing the words will be the most challenging part. So lets start with “Cats”.
Both of these songs could use some soloists!!! Email me if you think you would like a solo.! The more you listen the better you will know the songs.

“CATS” trivia question: What is the name of the cat that introduces Mr.Mistoffelees?

What is the name of the cat who goes to the “Heaven-Layer”? Hint: She sings
“Memory”.

Check back to this page often. You never know what you could be missing!
Email me. Karen.snyder@dor.org I would love to hear from you especially if you have questions or know the answers to the trivia questions.

Songs From “Cats” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWichUvkDec
Mr. Mistoffelees
You ought to ask Mr. Mistoffelees The original Conjuring Cat The greatest magicians have something to learn From Mr. Mistoffelees’s conjuring turn Presto! Refrain: And you’ll all say: Oh! Well I never! Was there ever A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees! Oh! Well I never! Was there ever A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees!
He is quiet and small He is black From the ears to the tip of his tail He can creep through the tiniest crack He can walk on the narrowest rail
He can pick any card from a pack He is equally cunning with dice He is always decieving you into believing That he’s only hunting for mice He can play any trick with a cork Or a spoon and a bit of fish paste If you look for a knife or a fork And you think it was merely misplaced You have seen it one moment, and then it is gone! But you find it next week lying out on the lawn! Refrain: And we all say… His manner is vague and aloof You would think there was nobody shyer But his voice has been heard on the roof When he was curled up by the fire And he’s sometimes been heard by the fire When he was about on the roof (At least we all heard that somebody purred) Which is uncontestable proof Of his singular magical powers And I’ve known the family to call Him in from the garden for hours When he was asleep in the hall And not long ago this phenomenal cat Produced seven kittens right out of a hat! Reafrain: Ladies and gentlemen
I give you the marvelous Magical Mr. Mistoffelees!

Jellicel Cats https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bq2UAL7rvZU and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbpP3Sxp-1U
There will be opportunities for solos on this song.
Are you blind when you’re born? Can you see in the dark? Can you look at a king? Would you sit on his throne?
Can you say of your bite that it’s worse than your bark? Are you cock of the walk when you’re walking alone?
Refrrain: Because Jellicles are and Jellicles do
Jellicles do and Jellicles would
Jellicles would and Jellicles can,J
ellicles can and Jellicles do
When you fall on your head, do you land on your feet? Are you tense when you sense there’s a storm in the air?
Can you find your way blind when you’re lost in the street? Do you know how to go to the Heaviside Layer?
Refrain: Can you ride on a broomstick to places far distant? Familiar with candle, with book and with bell?
Were you Whittington’s friend? The Pied Piper’s assistant? Have you been an alumnus of heaven or hell?
Refrain
We can dive through the air like a flying trapeze We can turn double somersaults, bounce on a tire
We can run up the wall, we can swing through the trees We can balance on bars, we can walk on a wire
Jellicles can and Jellicles do, Jellicles can and Jellicles do Jellicles can and Jellicles do, Jellicles can and Jellicles do

Can you sing at the same time in more than one key Duets by Rossini and waltzes by Strauss
And can you (as cats do) begin with a C, That always triumphantly brings down the house
Jellicle cats are queen of the nights Singing at astronomical heights
Handling pieces from the Messiah Hallelujah, angelical choir
The mystical divinity of unashamed felinity Round the cathedral rang “Vivat!”
Life to the everlasting cat! Feline, fearless, faithful and true
To others who do what Jellicles do and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do, Jellicle cats sing Jellicle chants
Jellicles old and Jellicles new, Jellicle song and Jellicle dance
