How to count the long notes

I was rehearsing for a concert with the Horizon Ensemble, and my good friend told me of a lovely comment made by one of her young pupils, who said before playing a piece of music, 'I'm looking forward to the long notes because I can count the beats with my wiggly tooth.' He then proceeded to do just this! What a great approach!!

We'll be counting the long notes whichever way, next Saturday, 13 June, at Dagnell Street Baptist Church, St Albans. The concert lasts about an hour and should be fun, not least because in one piece I both sing and play the bassoon, though not at the same time.
