Once again, Shirley McRae demonstrates her skillful writing for young voices. Bim Bam is sure to delight students and audiences alike. It is repetitious, easily learned, and offers many possibilities for rhythmic and melodic conceptual study. The middle section of the piece offers a second vocal line a third higher for more skilled choristers that can easily be left out (or perhaps played by a violin or clarinet). Body percussion and other accompanying instruments are sure to make this a favorite among your students!
