Help me to play short bursts of rhythm on percussion instruments

Little Soundabout: Level 4 | Card: 37 | Category: Proactive

Offer me a wide range of instruments and other soundmakers to play on

  • See which instruments and soundmakers I like playing best – drums of different kinds, tambourines and wooden blocks
  • Encourage me to play the same rhythmic pattern on different instruments …
  • … and different rhythms on the same instrument
  • Use ideas from Soundabout Music Tracks: Motifs and Songs
  • Try metallic soundmakers and instruments, such as saucepans and cymbals
  • Borrow a digital drum machine, and see whether that appeals to me
  • If I find making the movements needed to make a sound physically difficult, try using beam or gesture-recognition technology on a tablet
  • Record what I do for future interest and reference
