Each note is the quarter note, or beat, throughout the song, which means not every note sung will be played. I find it easier to have the kids play that way. I first introduce it by having them all clap the beat along with me as we sing the song or part of the song. That way they can start to understand when the bells are supposed to be played, and I help them by pointing to each note on the board as we go along as well.
