Ol’ Mister Rabbit

Ol’ Mister Rabbit is a long time folk favorite and can be found in many versions.   I’m sharing my version of the singing game taught by Mary Neely Stevens of the Kodaly Institute of Houston 2012.  A great way to prepare low la, Ol’ Mister Rabbit also provides a wonderful opportunity for simple Orff accompaniment and improvisation.Old Mister Rabbit-1My daughter, Victoria, a 2nd year elementary music specialist, created these  Veggie pictures.  Enjoy!

We played the game the first day I introduced it.  The next session, we circled up and accompanied ourselves with a simple F-C bordun on tonebells, taking turns improvising all the veggies we could think of.  It was love at first cabbage!
