One Man Band Poem for Kindergarten Lyrics

I play the guitar—

I strum every strand—

While I sing like a bird

In my new one-man band.

I bang on the drums

While my flute pipes along,

Give the cymbals three clangs,

But just one for the gong.

I am the conductor,

The key pianist;

This is clearly the reason

I’m meant to exist.

Who needs other players

With talent this grand?

There’s nothing quite like me

And my one-man band.

(But if you’re not busy, I’d sure like a hand!)

A performer who plays each instrument on a song as it is being recorded, one at a time, and then blends them together in a multitrack studio is referred to as a "one-man band" in colloquial usage.

The band's participants. You'll typically need a singer, a guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. I no longer play guitar. The only two instruments you should unquestionably think about getting are an acoustic or electronic drum set, and something to keep the bass end in check.
