Music Tip #28 The "La" pitch

Last week I told you about the sol and mi pitches. These are the first two pitches that young children sing to. The next pitch is the "la" pitch which is one step higher than the sol pitch. Lots of children's nursery rhymes and folk songs are completely made of the sol, la, mi pitches.

Here's some songs with these three pitches:
It's raining, it's pouring the old man is snoring
Icha backa soda cracker
Lucy Locket lost her pocket
Blue bells, cockle shells
Bye Baby bunting
See Saw, up and down
Star light, star bright
A tisket, a tasket

See if you can sing one of the songs and figure out which pitches are the sol, la, and mi pitches. Hint: La will be the highest note you sing and mi will be the lowest.
