Listen, Play, Beat!

Music making activities for 7–11 year-olds.

Recommended Age: 7–11 / Key Stage 2

This music making activity was originally designed for teachers but can also be used at home to listen and respond to music and create your own compositions with your child.

Instead of xylophones, you could use household objects, such as bottles filled with water, or download free music apps on your devices, such as Garageband.
