Here is an an amazing clip by Bobby McFerrin most of us know him as the man who sang “Don’t Worry Be Happy”. Until I saw this clip I never realized what an amazing teacher he was too!

In This clip he is able to teach the concept of Pentatonic Scales and get a non musical audience to sing and here it while he improvises over the to. With humor and fun added along the way I can’t help wonder why I have never used this idea in my classes.

Has anyone out there ever used this concept in their teaching?

I would love to get some feedback and discussion on how we can implement this idea into the classroom .. I’m sure we all agree that the best teaching happens when it’s just plain fun and everyone gets involved!
