2C Music Activity: 1st July 2020

Recycle, Re-use and Re-purpose to create music!

 

This week Mrs Hulbert and I would like you to create your own music using items from your household or those destined for the rubbish.  We sometimes call this 'junk percussion'.

 

You can just go for it and create your own junk percussion!   

 

                

 

Alternatively, there is a PowerPoint below which you might want to look at first. This shows some of the different ways that people across the globe have created music from 'unwanted' or household items from the Landfill harmonic in South America to the Vegetable Orchestra in Austria! 

 

All the YouTube links within the PowerPoint are also below including a video of Mrs Hulbert and her family making music from their recycling bin and other items in the garden. It is amazing and I am sure will give you lots of inspiration!

 

Don't forget to ask an adult before using any item to make music.

 

Please do send photos or videos of your creations...we can't wait to see them!

 

Have fun! 🎵
