Sound Garden on a Fence and Voila! It's Music Discovery
What a wonderful use of pots and pans,
unstrung wind chimes and a fence
with a long lifeline.
Just hanging on the fence waiting for some attention.
For inspiration, all these boys needed was a couple of sticks
and to hear the potential sounds that could be made.
And it was a concert!
This is a terrific way to channel that energy that looks like
swinging and hitting
with what otherwise might be weapons.
When these motions are channeled the kids are swinging and batting
at musical instruments that make sound.
Then, recognizing they can change and control the
sounds by how they 'hit' the item
their energy is focused
