ADDITIONAL MUSIC ACTIVITIES

E-Learning for Elementary Music


Every day is a good opportunity to continue growing as a musician. Every day is a good opportunity to strengthen your body.


MUSIC

Listening, composing, creating, playing instruments and learning about composers are all great ways to keep your music learning muscles growing strong.


  • Choose one activity from this menu each day:

  • Listen silently for 2 minutes (or more!) to the sounds in your home or outside. Make a list of all the sounds you hear. When you listen, think about the ways that music is all around us.

  • Make a list of your favorite songs. What makes you love a song? What music qualities does it have that makes you enjoy it?

  • Ask your caring adult for a few sturdy pots & pans two spoons. Create some interesting rhythms by tapping long and short sounds in different combinations.

  • Write a short song about a favorite topic! Sing it for a family member, a neighbor, or even a pet.

  • Sing a song you’ve been learning in music class. Practice it in front of a mirror and check to see if your face is being expressive! Great musicians use their face to convey the message of the song.

  • Write a review of your favorite animated show with music.

  • Create a dance for your favorite song. Use different movements for the different parts of the song (eg. chorus, refrain, bridge)

  • Make a playlist for your best friend. What songs would cheer them up on a rainy day? What songs would inspire them?

  • Create an illustration (picture) for your favorite song.
