This website provides two interactive music games using two popular songs from ten-time Grammy Award winner and innovative performer-composer-conductor Bobby McFerrin – who also happens to be a tireless advocate for music education.

When you get to the website you will see a menu with two choices: 

  • Launch “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” – McFerrin composed and performed this song that is one of the most popular of the late 20th century. The entire song is composed of McFerrin’s 4-octave range voice that mimics instruments. The song was created with 7 different overdubbed vocal parts all sung by McFerrin. Explore each of the 7 vocal parts and create your own versions of the song.
  • Launch “Just Enough” – Find out how Bobby created the bass, percussion, melody, and riffs for this song that has 8 different parts. Create your own versions of the song.

When you’re through playing these games, you can visit the rest of McFerrin’s site to learn more about him by clicking his name in the upper left corner of the website.
