>>Rachel: Welcome back! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. It’s Music Week on Chompers and tonight we have the answer to the riddle from this morning.
But first, pick a side on the top of your mouth, and start brushing in small circles all the way around each tooth.
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!
>>Rachel: Here’s that riddle again:
ONE note on a piano
OR how to open doors
Many songs are IN one
Many melodies and scores
What am I?
>> Kids: A Key!
>>Rachel: Keys aren't just for unlocking doors! (SFX: doorbell / hello) they can tell you a lot about a piece of music.
Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and don’t forget those front teeth (SFX).
In music, Keys are most commonly described as Major (SFX MAJOR) or Minor (SFX MINOR).
Music in minor keys often makes people think about sad things (SFX MINOR SAD RIFF/CRYING). But music in major keys (SFX MAJOR PEPPY RIFF) can make people feel happy, and make music feel bright! Does it make you smile? (SFX YAY) Give your smile a good brush!
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth (SFX), and give your tongue a brush too! (SFX)
Here’s your next riddle:
In music means how high or low
A note is in a scale
It’s also a throw in baseball game
Or trying to make a sale
What am I?
>> KIDS: A Pitch
>>Rachel: It’s a pitch. I hope our riddle didn’t make you PITCH a fit! (SFX Rimshot)
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth (SFX), but don’t brush too hard.
A pitch can mean a lot of things. In Baseball the pitcher throws the ball at the batter (SFX BASEBALL BAT CRACK). Salesmen can give you a sales pitch (SFX ACT NOW!) And pitching a fit means throwing a temper tantrum (SFX CRYING). But in music, a pitch means how high (SFX HIGH) or low (SFX LOW) a note is.
Great job brushing. You’re all done for tonight. Come back tomorrow for more music week and don't forget to
>>KIDS: 3, 2,1 spit!
