Don't Get Burned!

From Plank Road Publishing

by John Riggio

In this song about safety, humor is the vehicle used to convey a serious message. "Don't Get Burned!" is a primary piece which features a slapstick "boom-chick" structure that is very singable, repetitious, and easy to learn. Not only will your students have fun with it, but more important, they are likely to remember the ideas presented. A reproducible sheet of fire safety guidelines is included in the kit.

If you're using the recording, you're opening yourself up to a barrage of sound effects and noise makers that should have your students giggling. You'll also hear piano, banjo, guitar, bass, and a drum set played with brushes. We also added winds to emphasize the boom-chick and play some fun glisses. Toward the end of the piece, the piano takes on a more ragtime feel, and the trombone and bass trombone add the melody line in a somewhat bombastic manner. We even threw in a clarinet solo. As if that wasn't enough, we spruced it all up with our "lounge singers" sliding through a few background "ooh's," "ah's," and "woah's." (from Music K-8, Vol. 7, No. 4)
