Draw the Music

In this activity children quite literally draw the music as they hear it.

Provide large pieces of paper and pencils or wax crayons and ask your child to draw what they hear.

They could draw:

?    How the music makes them feel

?    Draw wavy lines or zig-zags to represent slow, flowing music or fast, choppy music

?    Draw the beats they hear (e.g. draw short and long lines for short and long sounds)

Keep this totally open and allow your child to surprise you with how he interprets and draws the music. Draw your own interpretation at the same time and see how your pictures differ.
