Here are two more games that can be used to practice musical concepts or elements.
“Improvisation”: use for structure of a song like “bow wow wow”. [If you need this song I will be glad to send it to you]. Keep the Rhythm, but have students improvise melodically on the third line only. All can sing lines 1,2, and 4, but only one person improvises on line 3. OR: Keeping only the form of the song intact (ABCA), improvise a whole new thing (can only be done rhythmically).
“Rhythm Snake”: A type of rhythmic improvisation. All keep heartbeat. each person in turn must clap a 4 beat rhythmic motive, with his first two beats the same as the last two beats of the person before him. OR: Choose a rhythmic ostinato of 4 beats. Everyone does a pattern in between each individual’s improvisation. each individual must make a pattern different from the one that went before.
