First Steps in Music Series
By John Feierabend
Plastic tote with various props and a lid

For over 20 years John Feierabend has been a leader in helping young children develop their singing voices. With this kit, teachers can now use many of his favorite tools and techniques with their own students. The kit includes puppets, toys and instruments designed to help with two types of vocal development activities. "Pitch Exploration Activities" invite children to create sliding sounds and encourage them to use their head voices. "Echo Songs" and "Call and Response Songs" allow children to use their newly found head voices to sing short melodic phrases. The included manual contains a variety of activity ideas, as well as a few songs to practice concepts.   

Contents: beanbag, siren whistle, cow puppet, propeller on a stick, slide whistle, 2 whale stuffed toys, plastic eyes, yarn, tuning fork, 2 ghost puppets, pipe cleaners and 21-page instruction booklet.   

Booklet Contents: Contents of Kit, Introduction, Understanding Head Voice & Chest Voice, Pitch Exploration, Pitch Exploration Activities, Echo Songs & Call & Response Songs, Echo Songs & Call & Response Activities, Echo Songs (Oh My No More Pie, Oh My Aunt Came Back, Bill Grogan's Goat), Call & Response Songs (John the Rabbit, Sea Lion, Step Back Baby, The Telephone).

What is the "spinner toy" and what is the wooden tool next to the cow puppet in the picture?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2012
Best Answer: The spinner flies offhand goes in the air and lands. I think the students are supposed to follow it with their voice. The wooden object is a "microphone".

Have you found this to be successful?
Joann B on Jun 4, 2012
Best Answer: They are good props for vocal exploration, however, you can probably put together your own kit at a fraction of the cost.
