Buzzing flea: vocal warm up by Artis. Children sing better when they are relaxed and enjoying themselves, so this is an effective and fun warm up that will help improve the quality of their singing. In this activity children have to concentrate to follow the different stages involved in eating a buzzing flea. It allows them to explore the range of their voices, which will then equip them better to hit the pitch and right notes in a song.

Their teacher told me this was their new theme song. Let me tell you....all the kids were standing up and singing this song LOUD and with hand movements. It was so awesome because I could see how much they BELIEVED the words to this song.
