I was listening to this great tune in my kitchen and I noticed there was a great part for the salt shaker. It was only a matter of time before the girls and I orchestrated our own family jam along with homemade instruments!

I found “Stand By Me” to be a great song to play along with because it’s got a steady groove throughout, but also some standout parts (yeah, violin solos!) The lyrics can also remind us that even though we are physically apart, music can bring us together in our community as we stand by each other in spirit.

Our instrumentation included:
• A tissue box with rubber bands
• A salt container
• A glass mason jar and baby spoon
• Paper towel tubes as violins with a chopstick/ paintbrush as a bow
