Listen and Notice
I have recorded a song for you that is upbeat and cheerful with a message I hope will bring you some comfort. It is my version of “Count on me” by Bruno Mars.
Have a listen and just notice how you feel and if your body has the urge to do anything e.g., tap your feet.
Body Percussion Ideas
Watch this Youtube video to get some new ideas:
Have a go at some of the ideas on the video.
If supporting someone to participate, you could work together. Tap the beat out on their knees or hands, take notice of some of their sounds or movements and see if you can use the same to make a shared sound.
Sharing this activity with the family or a group means everyone can participate in their own way and enjoy the creativity of each other. It will hopefully be fun, encouraging laughter and connections between you.
Listen and join in
Listen to “Count on me” again and see if you can try some of your new ideas out. How does it feel?
If you feel a different song would be better, try singing or listening to this instead eg: nursery rhymes might be better for younger children or a favourite song might be more your style.
