Get Adventurous: Woodland Symphony

Wednesday 22nd May 2019

This is great idea for getting out into your local woodland or other space where there are plenty of natural materials like sticks, rocks, and leaves. The group is given some time to explore and find natural objects that can make a noise, such as two rocks that can be struck together or a blade of grass used as a whistle.

The idea is then to put these sounds together and create a piece of music. You could group similar sounds, ask one member of the group to be the conductor – indicating when each person should make/play their sound. The purpose of this activity is to get out and explore, to discover the beautiful sounds that can be created by the natural objects in our environment. You could always choose a familiar tune with an easy rhythm that they can all join in and play to.
