Music Activities


There's lot of fun to be had at home with Music.  Music can help to get you moving, lift your mood and motivate you.  You may already have favourite bands or artists you could listen to.


A few easy things you could do include:             

♦   put the radio on - listen to songs and sing along

♦   play music by your favourite artist

♦   imagine you're a rock star using a hairbrush for a microphone

♦   write and perform your own song or rap to your family

♦   use your body as percussion

♦   or try to make basic beat-box sounds
