This is a warm-up game that works with choir groups or just a group of music students at a school.
You will need:
- Space to play
How to play:
- The parent or teacher is the conductor who will say a few musical or rhythmic phrases to begin with and the children will have to repeat.
- Then replace the notes with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. The children will have to say the opposite of what you say, in the same rhythmic fashion.
- For example, if you sing, “No, no, no, yes, no, yes, no, no”, then the kids will have to sing “yes, yes, yes, no, yes, no, yes, yes”.
You can use only one word or mix up the two words to make it confusing and fun for the kids.
