Music is Magic

6 Music is Magic 2017 - Full Score

Actions / Signs

Initially, the song will be a moment of reflection for new students as they will take a while to learn and understand the words. This itself is positive but soon they will recognise the recurring ‘Music is Magic’ motif. The signs for music and magic can soon be incorporated.

MUSIC

Conduct with both hands

is MAGIC

Open fist to spread fingers

It opens up your HEART

Both hands over the heart then reach outward

It is important to stress that whilst some students will learn to sing the song accurately though copying or even reading the words, many will not be able to reach anything like this level of achievement. However, any attempt to sing or even say in time just some of the words still holds tremendous value. Over time, students will begin to shape the words with their mouths and will begin to produce a sound which is recognisable and in time with the music. Nothing is more satisfying than to see this process unfold and to see tears of pride well up in the eyes of the loved ones and carers around them.

Lyrics >>

Music is magic, it opens up your heart
Feel it and use it, it touches every part
Of the world we hold dear,
Bringing loved ones ever near
‘Cos music is magic to me.

Music is magic, it opens up your heart
Feel it and use it, it touches every part
Of the world we hold dear
Bringing loved ones every near
‘Cos music is magic to me.

Let your voices sing
With the hope that you will bring
The melody of life within us all
Sing it louder still!
Sing it soft until
It’s the time you know that

Music is magic, it opens up your heart
Feel it and use it, it touches every part
Of the world we hold hear,
bringing loved ones ever near
‘Cos music is magic to me.
