The Wellerman Tap Along

Everyone is talking about the Tik Tok hit sensation The Wellerman! Did you know it's based on a type of music called a Sea Shanty?

A Sea Shanty is a type of work song that sailors used to sing when they working on board ship as they were hauling on ropes or pulling oars. The strong pulse running throughout these songs help the sailors keep in time with each other.


What to do

  • Find | You'll need two things  you can tap on a hard surface (e.g. two spoons, or two pens)
  • Right and left | Follow the video and tap the patterns for line 1 in your left hand and line 2 in your right hand
  • Challenge | Why not try doing both at the same time!? You might need a few practice goes at this
