Creating atmospheric music. Invite your child to imagine they are walking through a dark, thickly wooded forest. Get them to think about how they might walk with cautious steps. Encourage words such as quietly walking, darkness, and stillness, possibly referring to a favourite story or movie. Now offer them a shaker or a pot and wooden spoon asking them to show how a ‘walking part’ could be improvised to match the steps of the ‘walker’. By having different sized pots or additional sound makers, you may create additional textures that could represent the different animals in the forest. Questions such as, “Is it night time or day time?” “Which animals and birds might we hear?” Are there boughs from the trees creaking in the wind or twigs breaking underfoot?


    Musical Improvisation is the creative activity of immediate (“in the moment”) music making, which combines performance with different moods, feelings, images and instrumental technique as well as spontaneous response to other musicians.

    Thanks for your post. One other thing is when you are selling your preoprty all on your own, one of the troubles you need to be mindful of upfront is just how to deal with household inspection reviews. As a FSBO supplier, the key towards successfully moving your preoprty along with saving money about real estate agent revenue is know-how. The more you already know, the better your home sales effort might be. One area where this is particularly critical is home inspections. [url=]gjmaeyafpa[/url] [link=]kwbdcvnv[/link]
