Celebrate by Making Music with Your Family

Here are a few musical ideas you can try to celebrate making music with your family—on Music Monday and every day!

Play a Sound Guessing Game! A fun activity from one of our expert teachers:

Invite kids to close their eyes while you (or a musical helper) make music with an item in your home (e.g., pencils, crayons, crayon box, spoons, pots and pans—or instruments if you have them!). Play the instrument and have the children try to guess what you just played. Take turns sharing and guessing. Check out more ideas for musical games from Music Together teachers to continue the fun!

  • Download the Music Together app for 8 free Music Together songs. (If you’re enrolled in Music Together, log in to access all of your semester music, too.) Share your favorite on social media with the hashtags #woyc19 and #MusicMonday. And don’t forget to tag @MusicTogether on Facebook, @MusicTogetherWorldwide on Instagram.Music Together App
