Cuckoo, cuckoo, come fly with me,
Fly over rivers, fly over treetops,
Cuckoo, cuckoo, come fly with me.

It is oooooo it is
It sounds like a primary song to me
I hope that’s a good thing.
This is a fun lesson
I’m so glad you think so!
I liked the (point here) idea but I have a touchscreen computer!!!
Oh, dear! Did your playback stop when you touched the video viewing area? I’m sorry about that. At least it’s an easy problem to fix. – Mr. Hoffman
I like to play cuckoo! Thanks!
I like ur lessons mr hoffman
Thank you for teaching us. I learned cuckoo and hot cross buns.
When will there be Puppets.
Ok, this is strange.. You say in the video that the song starts on SO but the note is on the line of C which means that we are talking about DO.. Isn’t it?
Good question. There are two different ways to use Solfege: Fixed Do and Movable Do. In some countries, a fixed Do system is used, where Do always means C – that sounds like what you have learned. However, I find it most helpful as a teacher to use the letters (ABCDEFG) as a fixed system and to use Solfege (Do, Re, Mi, etc) as a movable system that can be transposed into any key we need. To learn more about these two systems of Solfege, check out our article, “What is Solfege?” – Mr. Hoffman
I had a sore throat doing this lesson but that is the beauty of doing online lessons. If it was a live teacher I would have had to cancel the lesson! Thank you mr hoffman
If reading the sheet music without having your commentary, what would indicate that the B note is a B-flat in this song? Thanks, Joseph!
Great question. If you look at each line of music, right before the time signature, you will see a flat on the B line. In that location, it’s not referring to just one note, but to the key signature for the whole song. One flat on the B means that this music is to be played in F major pentascale, so the B will always be flat unless an individual note indicates otherwise.
This is now one of my favorite songs to play
Why are some notes upside down?
Notes usually “flip” upside-down if they go on or above the middle line (3rd line) of the staff. They mean exactly the same thing whether the stem points up or down. It simply done so the note does not stick too far off the staff. Thanks for the question!
This lessons are the best I have ever had in my whole entire life thank mr.hoffman! U are so awesome!
I think that these are the best lessons I’ll ever have! Thank you sooo much for the hard work you’ve put into makeing these videos!
