8 Permission to Make Lots of Noise

It can be fun to fill the space with a lot of sound. Most need encouragement to try this, so give them permission to ‘make lots of noise’. Lead by example, go wild and hit lots of buttons! Some will naturally play more than one sound, others will be more sensitive and play more delicately. This is a great way to generate energy and contrasting moods. Encourage players to do the opposite of their inclinations. Watch their reactions. There is usually a lot of smiling and laughter. After a noisy flurry, let things subside and encourage the players just to listen until silence returns. This creates a wonderful contrast in mood. It is a natural way to lead into other activities like breathing and meditation.
