Maraca RockAt least, they will be after hearing today’s song! Maracas (and shakers in general) are a favorite instrument for most of my students, so I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into music therapy. Maraca Rock does just that…and as a bonus, it also addresses an important skill: discrimination of space (high, low, back, forth).

Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Got the rhythm shakin’ and the beat is quakin’
The maraca rock-a rock!

Rock your maracas way down low, maraca rock-a rock!
Way down low, rock them way down low, maraca rock-a rock!
Rock your maracas way up high, maraca rock-a rock!
Way up high, rock them way up high, maraca rock-a rock!

Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Got the rhythm shakin’ and the beat is quakin’
The maraca rock-a rock!

Rock your maracas back and forth, maraca rock-a rock!
Back and forth, rock them back and forth, maraca rock-a rock!
Rock your maracas all around, maraca rock-a rock!
All around, rock them all around, maraca rock-a rock!

Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Maraca rock-a, rock-a, rock!
Got the rhythm shakin’ and the beat is quakin’
The maraca rock-a rock!

The first Monday of each month is always exciting, because that is when I introduce all my new songs to my students (although I think sometimes the staff and parents look forward to it more than the students!). I also have a fun new book I will be sharing with you all in the coming days. Stay tuned!
