SOUND EXPERIMENTATION – K-2:

  • Put together a combination of pots, pans, Tupperware and wooden spoons and have a jam with your own drum kit!

SOUND EXPERIMENTATION – 3-6:

  • Choose an object from around your house and experiment with how many different sounds you can make with it by playing it different ways
  • Use an A4 piece of paper to see how many different sounds you can make with it (challenge: can you find over 25 ways?)

THEN choose an activity below:

K-6:

  • Whilst you’re listening, imagine what you think the song is about and draw a picture!
  • Listen to 2 of the above pieces.  Which do you prefer? Why?

3-6:

  • Research the composer of the piece.  Where did they live?  Which instruments did they play?  What contribution did they make to the musical world?

CREATE:

  • Create a soundscape using objects from around your house (challenge: video yourself playing it!)
  • Use recycled rubbish from around the house (eg. bottles, boxes, lids, tins etc) and create your very own instrument! (Take a photo/video of yourself playing it!)
  • Use your imagination to create your own instrument and draw a diagram of it.  Think about the materials you would use and the sounds it would make!

RESEARCH:

Choose an orchestral instrument and use your Google skills to find out the following:

  • When was it first made? How is it made?
  • Which instrument family does it belong to? Why?
  • Find a song which features this instrument
