Expect making, exploring, supersizing,

0:00:040:00:07

dancing, fact-finding and laughing.

0:00:070:00:10

We've only got a few minutes, so get ready for more fun

0:00:100:00:13

from The Let's Go Club.

0:00:130:00:15

Fact fans - today, we are finding out all about music.

0:00:150:00:20

The strumming sound of guitar strings.

0:00:200:00:22

The twinkle of a triangle's ding.

0:00:220:00:25

Tickling piano keys from left to right.

0:00:250:00:28

A trumpet's fanfare, loud and bright.

0:00:280:00:30

Drums are banging, symbols clanging,

0:00:300:00:33

a feast for your ears with music facts.

0:00:330:00:35

First up - cows like to listen to music.

0:00:350:00:38

It's UDDERLY true!

0:00:380:00:40

Cows that have gentle music played to them produce more milk

0:00:400:00:44

than cows who don't.

0:00:440:00:46

When cows listen to soothing music at milking time,

0:00:460:00:49

it makes them happy, comfortable and relaxed.

0:00:490:00:52

The happier a cow feels, the more their milk flows.

0:00:520:00:55

So, if you want to double your dairy,

0:00:550:00:57

you'd better put on some MOO-SIC and change the MOO-D!

0:00:570:01:03

Next - mosquitoes impress each other with love songs.

0:01:030:01:07

All mosquitoes buzz -

0:01:070:01:09

it's the sound their wings make when they flap super fast.

0:01:090:01:12

But when a boy mosquito meets a girl mosquito he really likes,

0:01:120:01:16

he flaps his wings faster and faster, then so does she,

0:01:160:01:20

until they are flapping in time together.

0:01:200:01:23

And this little sign of energetic affection makes the sound of

0:01:230:01:27

their buzzing exactly the same.

0:01:270:01:29

Sounds like these music-loving insects really are in tune!

0:01:290:01:33

Next - in West Africa, there are drums that can talk.

0:01:330:01:37

Talking drums have been used to send messages from one village

0:01:370:01:41

to another for hundreds of years - quicker than on foot or by horse.

0:01:410:01:46

Each drum is wide at the ends and thinner in the middle,

0:01:460:01:49

and when you squeeze them under your arm and tap the skins,

0:01:490:01:53

they make lots of different sounds.

0:01:530:01:55

A good drummer can play noises and rhythms that sound

0:01:550:01:59

just like a person's voice. Now, that's hard to beat!

0:01:590:02:04

And finally - brain freeze could help you be

0:02:040:02:07

a classical music composer. Ice cool!

0:02:070:02:11

Ludwig van Beethoven, a famous German composer, used to dunk his

0:02:110:02:16

head in a bucket of ice cold water before he wrote a piece of music.

0:02:160:02:20

Beethoven claimed this chilly custom helped him to get in tune

0:02:200:02:25

and think of new rhythms.

0:02:250:02:26

Well, it must have worked, because Beethoven wrote some of

0:02:260:02:30

the most well-known classical music for orchestras.

0:02:300:02:33

But please, don't try this at home, it's SNOW joke!

0:02:330:02:37

You can join The Let's Go Club, too.

0:02:390:02:42

Grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.

0:02:420:02:45

There are songs to sing, things to make and do,

0:02:450:02:48

and CBeebies Radio, too.

0:02:480:02:50

Remember, we're the club that never closes!

0:02:500:02:53

The Let's Goers get all melodic with some fun-tastic animated facts about music.

This is The Let's Go Club, but mini! Expect making, exploring, super-sizing, dancing, fact-finding and laughing.
