Musical Prodigy

Feeling musical? Write a song about your Patrol or Expedition Team to let everyone know what you are all about. Show up to any event in style with your new tune!

Plan

  • What do you know about creating songs?
  • Are you going to use another song’s tune, or create your own?
  • Will you use musical instruments or just your voices?
  • How will you perform your song, live or video or recording?
  • Will you teach it to the other members of your Section?
  • Would you like to challenge the other members of your Section to create their own songs?

Do

  • Be creative. You can use a tune from a song you already know and change the lyrics, or come up with something that’s completely original.
  • You can add hand clapping, foot stomping, whistling, drumming… The only limit is your collective imagination!
  • Perform your new song for your Section, or create a music video for your song!
  • This is a great way to inspire other members of your Section, and to get everyone in the mood for a good time—because hey, you have arrived!

Review

  • What do you know now that you did not know before?
  • Did you have fun? Why or why not?
  • Were you part of a team? How did the team get along?

Keep it Simple

  • Maybe writing a song seems like too big a task – try writing a cheer or chant for your team instead!

Take it Further

  • Show off your song to the rest of the world! Run a variety show for other Sections and Groups and perform your song as part of it.
