Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

Kids love “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” because they can play with something they know well, the parts of the human body. Throughout this song, the four parts of the human body mentioned are gradually substituted by a sound. That could be a sound of a percussion instrument, a clap or any other body-generated sound.

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

Although simple to sing, Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes has some peculiarity in terms of the notes we need to play on a musical instrument. The song consists of all the notes of the C4-D5 plus the note F#.  It’s a good opportunity to teach F# if you have already taught the whole octave.

Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
