I've been trying to find popular childrens songs to help teach intervals. I found this from a theory website:
m2- Stormy Weather m2
M2- Happy Birthday M2
m3- The Impossible Dream m3
So Long, Farewell from The Sound of Music
M3- Halls of Montezuma M3
P4- Here comes the bride P4
A4- Maria from West Side Story A4
P5- Star Wars P5
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
M6- NBC theme music M6
m7- Somewhere from West Side Story m7
M7- Bali Hai from South Pacific M7
Octave- Over the rainbow Oct.
I'm looking for more songs that begin with the following intervals:
m2 - Jaws theme perhaps, but many kids haven't seen this movie.
m7 - Most kids don't know Somewhere from West Side story
Ocatave - most kids don't know Over the Rainbow
If you can help or give some ideas, let me know. Thanks.
