Take advantage of the close connection between music and movement in the brain

  • Use Soundabout Music Tracks: Motifs and Songs such as:
    • To and fro
    • Left, right
    • Up and down

  • Try using other children’s songs that involve moving
  • Use sea shanties and other work songs with designed to be moved to
  • Make up words to other popular, classical, jazz or folk music: the main thing is they have a strong rhythm and a well-defined melodic shape
