Not only can you do movement activities with stretchy bands, but you can teach music concepts too!

TEACH MUSIC CONCEPTS

It’s not hard to integrate learning music concepts with stretchy band movement activities.

Classical  music offers some great opportunities to help children make connections.

For example:

“William Tell Overture”

MUSIC CONCEPT: Fast/Slow

Imagine riding horses fast and slow. Show the way the horses go using your stretchy band.

Hold on tight to the “reins” of the horse.

It’s time to gallop away across the plains and over the hills.

Faster, faster!

Here we go!

Moreover, here’s some ideas on increasing learning in your music room.

Five Ways to Use a Stretchy Band

The stretchy band is an extremely versatile tool and I have seen music therapists use it in a variety of ways. Janet herself has an amazing guide of 21 activities to do with the stretchy band. My measly 5 may be small in comparison, but they are always a hit at my holistic therapy center!”
