Help me make sound patterns by varying a repeated movement

For example, by tapping more loudly or quietly, or faster or more slowly

  • Help me to make the connection between gradually hitting soundmakers with more force and making louder sounds as a result
  • Show me how to do it by placing my hand over yours while you make a series of bigger movements to hit a drum or tambourine
  • Fade your support, bit by bit, if you can
  • Now do the same, but getting faster or slower
  • You could try doing the same thing with my bare feet on a drum
  • Next, try helping me to play a small keyboard, pressing the notes, one by one, with one or two of my fingers, going from left to right to make higher sounds, going up a scale (like C, D, E, F, G)
  • Use the weight of my hand to push the notes down, supporting my hand from underneath
  • Help me build up a mental model of patterns of change with Soundabout Music Tracks: Patterns
