Make up short pieces with me using bursts of rhythm or bits of tunes

Help me take my first steps to making up my own music – it’s easier than it sounds

  • Don’t be afraid to ask a trained musician to help you get going
  • Start by taking it in turns to make short rhythms
  • Use percussion instruments, everyday sound-makers or specialist technology if needed
  • Now try the same with our voices
  • And then, melody instruments
  • Sometimes, let’s copy what each other does
  • Other times, let’s make new phrases up that seem to fit with the old
  • Soon, we’ll be starting to making up whole new songs together
  • Can you make up some words to fit with our tune?
  • Make recordings of what we come up with,and give the songs names, so we can call them up in the future when we want to listen to them
