  1. Wow! Such fun, too!

    It’s a great way to get audience participation and I was wondering if there could be a similar but different use of this concept using words or movements. As a teacher, I’m always looking for creative ways to get students involved in the discussion/learning.

    The pentatonic scale and the audience’s ability to keep going while Bobby McFerrin sang a tune around the notes was lovely. I bet that wasn’t easy for him to be giving the audience cues for their notes while singing something different.

    1. Yes, I know when I try to do two things at once, I don’t last very long! That’s a great thought about using words or movements…perhaps with poetry? Because poetry often has an innate rhythm…just a thought. 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing! So cool to have all of us tuned in to God’s music. Makes sense that the pentatonic scale of Asian music and American folk music (e.g., How Firm a Foundation or Be Thou My Vision) all comes from the same Source.

    1. We’re seeing through the variety of music in the world, God’s own complexity and richness. And yet in this video, as you said, we’re all seeing our unity in being creatures of the same Creator. Love it!
