Gemma talks about how she made the video for BOO!
The ILOVEUKE students at Recreation Road have been learning the uke with me for 6 weeks. So far they have learnt the chords,
C, Am and F.
So I was thinking, "3 chords. That's enough for a song, right?!" But I fancied doing something original and new this term. So I thought we'd try a song for Halloween. I came up with the chords and asked the children to write some lyrics (I'm not so great at writing lyrics). Within a week, over the 3 groups, we came up with the song 'BOO!'.
I recorded them singing and making scary noises on my iPhone and, with a little help on the strumming from my Tuesday Avenues Uke Group, pasted it all together. I then added some drums and some sound effects in Garageband, and I'm pretty happy with the result.
Even better, I realised that while being recorded in their Halloween gear at home, they are actually getting a bit of practice in too. Sneaky! (Insert evil laugh here)
Thanks to all the parents that helped with the clips, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it.
Don't have nightmares....
Trick or Treat,
Lots of Sweets,
It's time to scream and shout,
So get your pumpkins out,
