In this game sheets with special characters (any character
that are not on a classic sheet) have to be created
and performed by the team.
This is a game for improving cooperation skills and developing focus in a creative way. Creating the sheet and coming up with rhythms is a great team building exercise. By living in the rhythm create a fun atmosphere.
The facilitator creates two groups and explains the task.
First group has to find out a specific rhythm pattern that the other group needs to play on their bodies or rhythm instruments. This part of the game is like a music sheet creation task: they have to capture the rhythm, however they cannot use classic notes but symbols.
instead of „ ♪ ♫ ” they can use symbol “$” and they have to explain it means: beat with your feet
or with the symbol „❤” they want the other group to clap their hands etc.
When the first group finishes, the second group performs it based on the instructions – as a music reading task.
