We had a great first class of the year at preschool music! Baby M. (stands for music) my wee monkey helper introduced the children to right hand, treble clef uptown, and then left hand, bass clef downtown. We then marched uptown to the music of “Candy Corn Munch,” to the pumpkin patch where we met Captain Crescendo! The children learned about the two black keys from Floppy the elephant, and then each child received two pieces of candy corn as they stood on the two black notes of our giant keyboard. – Great music fun!
Fall has arrived – which for many people, means leaves changing color, apple cider and pumpkin patch time, but in my house growing up it always meant that candy corn would be more readily available in the stores! My mom started my siblings and me on the tradition, so I thought the other week when I bought a bag of yummy mix for my mom she would be ecstatic, but no. She announced to me, “Oh no! Do not get me started. I’m trying to eliminate sugar out of my diet!” Now my brother, Tim, still loves candy corn and will raid whatever stash he can find this time of year. I dedicate this song, “Candy Corn Munch,” to my beloved mom and to my brother, Tim!
