Help me make sound patterns by gradually changing a movement

Soundabout Life: Level 3 | Card: 24 | Category: Proactive

Examples include tapping more loudly or quietly, or faster or more slowly

  • Encourage me to grasp the connection between gradually hitting instruments with more force and making louder sounds
  • Place my hand over yours to show me what to do
  • Gradually fade your support so that I do it increasingly unassisted
  • Now do the same thing, getting faster or slower
  • Next, help me to play a small keyboard, pressing the white notes with one or two of my fingers, going from left to right, up a scale (like C, D, E, F, G)
  • Use the weight of my hand to push the keys down, supporting my hand from underneath
  • Do the same with runs of black notes, going from left to right, and right to left – getting higher and then getting lower
