Instrumental Tracks 

Individualized speech and language practice put to music

Have you ever written a little song or poem to teach your students or child

– a language concept?

– how to imitate signs and other hand gestures?

– how to follow verbal directions?

– how to name objects?

– how to imitate simple words and phrases?

If not, I encourage you to explore the gift of creating your own songs.

I’m here to help you by giving you some lyrics and a FREE instrumental track. Download your free track here.

I call this track, My Eyes, Nose, Hair, Toes. As you listen, you may recognize this song as The Mexican Hat Dance. This is a public domain tune that can be used by educators without fear of copyright laws.

Would you like some lyrics for this wonderful tune?

I wrote these lyrics for a parent who wanted to teach her child to point to body parts during their diaper changing routine.

My Eyes, Nose, Hair, Toes © Rachel Arntson lyrics, tune Mexican Hat Dance, public domain

My eyes, eyes, eyes. My nose, nose, nose.

My hair, hair, hair. My toes, toes, toes.

My hands, hands, hands. My feet, feet, feet.

My arms, arms, arms. Isn’t that neat?

Na na na na na na na, na na na na na na

Na na na na na na na, na na na na na na

(These CV practices can vary according to your child’s needs.)

(During CV practices, encourage your child to dance and sing at the same time)

Here’s another song for you using this Mexican Hat Dance instrumental. I wrote these lyrics to help a child enjoy or at least tolerate the tooth brushing routine without crying. All children benefit from songs during daily routines, but kids who struggle with specific routines REALLY NEED THEM! I even use this song with my granddaughter, and she loves it.

Songs are very helpful for routines, especially difficult ones, because of these features:

– Songs have a clear beginning and end.

– Songs are predictable.

– Songs can teach the sequence of an event or routine.

I Brush My Teeth © Rachel Arntson, lyrics, Tune, Mexican Hat Dance, public domain

I brush my teeth in the morning. I brush my teeth at night.

I brush and brush and brush and brush to make them clean and bright.

I brush my teeth on the bottom. I brush my teeth on top.

I brush and brush and brush and brush. I brush and then I stop.

    1. Thank you for your suggestion. Our music is not an app, as you know, but they can easily be transferred to an iPad when you load the files to your computer and then transfer them to the iPad by syncing the two. We created printable visuals that can also be viewed using emailed to your iPad and viewed using iBooks. Our Animation Station videos of our songs can also be transferred to an iPad using the iTunes player on your computer and then syncing the two devices. We have our songs available on USB flashdrives now to make this process a little bit easier. Thank you for your suggestion. Although we do not have an app with interactive capability, we feel that, in many ways, our songs, visuals, and movies provide great opportunities for speech practice that apps sometimes don’t provide. Take care.
