Help me to make up and down patterns in sound by moving

Little Soundabout: Level 3 | Card: 23 | Category: Proactive

Give me soundmakers where a single movement can make a series of notes

  • Put a ukulele or guitar under my fingers so I could potentially pluck the strings and gently guide my fingers to strum slowly up and down
  • Do the same with a little keyboard that has light-weight keys: help me sweep slowly right and left
  • Blow on a slide whistle and show me, by putting my hand on the plunger and moving it up and down, how the sound changes
  • Help me to use an app on a tablet or computer with a touch-screen that plays different notes as you slide your finger across it
  • Use ‘beam’ technology that responds to gestures to help me to play short musical scales by waving my hand or foot in the air or by shaking my head
  • Fade your support to see if I can do it on my own
  • Help me build up a mental model of up and down patterns by playing the Soundabout Music Tracks: Patterns resource
