Where to Listen



Welcome back! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show!  

It’s Songs Week Tonight we’re going to learn about SINGING! With … SOME SONGS!

Pick a side on the top of your mouth and use your toothbrush to make small circles around each tooth!


Music is made of A LOT of pieces.  And there are different ways to talk about those pieces! 

A SOLO means you sing or play all by yourself! You’re the star!

A DUET is a song you sing with someone else! You’re a team, making music TOGETHER!

A QUARTET is a group of FOUR people or instruments … each with own part to sing or play, to make the song beautiful!

Switch your brushing to other side of the top of your mouth, and make sure you’re brushing the INSIDE, the OUTSIDE, and the CHEWING side of each of your teeth!

So here’s what a SOLO sounds like:

Here’s a solo, here’s a solo

By myself, just me and I!

Just my voice and what I’m singing

I’m the star here, no other guys.

Any person, any instrument

Playing loud, all alone

In an orchestra or a choir

Or a band or a combo

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth. Don’t forget to brush your FRONT teeth too!

A DUET is a song with two people or instruments.

A: Here’s a duet, here’s a duet

B: The two of us side by side

A: We are partners on this melody

H: We sing together and get it right

B: You take this part, I’ll take that part

A: Different roles for us to play

B: But when we bring them both together

H: Our duet sounds really great

Time to brush the other side of the bottom of your mouth -- make sure you’re reaching the molar teeth in the back!

A quarter just means four of something … and a really fun kind of quarter is a BARBERSHOP quartet. 

Our last part is a quartet - It sounds like THIS!

Here’s a quartet, here’s a quartet

Four of us all on the case

I’m the lead guy I’m the baritone

I’m the tenor I’m the bass

We’re a quartet, we’re a quartet

With our teamwork can’t go wrong!

We each sing our different parts but 

They come together on this song

So now you know what a solo, a duet, and a quartet sounds like!

You’ve done a great job brushing! Time to rinse out your mouth and … 3 2 1 spit!
