    Why thank you. Other than the panic in my soul it was fine :)

  2. Love it! I play on our little xylophone all the time. You've pretty well covered what I can play with your list. I'd add Once There was a Snowman; Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes; Do as I'm Doing; and the Elmo's World theme song. That's just off the top of my head. It's amazing what you can play with 8 notes!

  3. When you walk into a band room with nothing to do, kids are always all over the xylophones. My favorite sister of the xylophone is the vibraphone. They have metal bars/keys, and you can either hit them or play them with a violin bow to get an eerie effect.
