The Most Amazing Instrument of All
This bulletin board just cracks me
up! Using my digital camera I had my
hubby take a picture of my smiling face. I blew it up to almost life-size and
printed it out. Next I created a funny body for my lovely printed head. (I just
created a simple dress with arms..you could be more elaborate if you wanted.) Next to each body part
I have put a label with the
name of the body part and how you can make music with it. This idea was adapted
from "Kids Make Music" by Hart and Mantell. These are some of the
Brain: The greatest synthesizer of
them all! Your brain works with the rest of you to bring out the tunes, beats,
words and movements inside you.
Eyes: Imagine! Pick up cues.
Ears: Pick up sounds to play
Voice box: Vibrates the sound
you hum or sing.
Fingers: snap and pop and
Wrist: pulse point
Arms: wave or sway to the beat
Neck: Pulse point.
Hands: clap, slap, rap and
Lungs: Give power to your
Heart: Best beat keeper in the
word: place where your feelings live.
Swiveling hips: shake, rattle
and roll; adds "oomph" to your music.
Thighs: clap like a big bass
Legs: dance and leap
Feet: stomp, pound, and drum;
happy feet are for dancing
Toes: tap out a beat
