Body Percussion Challenge


It's amazing how many sounds you can make with your hands, voice and feet! Can you create a body percussion piece to go with a favourite song? Could you find a way of writing it down in pictures, or in symbols, so that others can try it out? You could choose to make a f rhythm which you could repeat through each chorus. Alternatively, you could change it to suit each verse or section of the song. Feel free to add dance moves too. Remember that silence or stillness can also be part of your rhythm or moves.


Below, there are some videos to give you a little inspiration. There is also a metronome which will keep the beat going whilst you practise. If you would like to send Mrs Joint a short clip of your percussion (no longer than 30 seconds), then please ask your parents to email this to her via ( Remember to ask your parents to add your name and year group. It would be great to share you moves and music with others in school.

It's a shame that you can't hear their body percussion very well, but it is a great example of adding simple moves as you make your sounds.
