Last summer as I was planning an ocean-themed music class, I thought, “what better song to adapt than a Disney classic that’s perfectly on topic?!” So I did exactly that.
The tune is (mostly) the same, but the lyrics got a little makeover so that now, “Under the Sea” can be used to facilitate castanet playing.
My new version is a bit less wordy than the original, so it works well in an early childhood or music therapy setting. You can also easily switch out “castanets” for “rhythm sticks” and keep the rest of the lyrics the same. I love a great multi-purpose song!

Cool! You are making the best decisions. Just looking at your kids makes me want to hug all of you! Thank you, Rachel, for including me in your blog. I like the “Under the Sea” and plan to bookmark this email for my granddaughter.
You are so sweet to say that, Nancy; thank you! I really appreciate your support and encouragement. And thank you for sharing the song with your granddaughter! :)
