Composition Game

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 a song with rhythms is a great team building exercise. By listening to the song to be performed, it adds to the fun atmosphere.


The facilitator creates two groups and explains the task.

First group has to find a simple song that the other group needs to play on a music device or by heart. This part of the game is like a music sheet creation task: they have to capture the song, however they cannot use classic notes but symbols.

For example:
instead of „ ♪ ♫ ” they can use symbol “$” and they have to explain it means: sing „LA”
or with the symbol „❤” they want the other group to sing another note

When the first group finishes, the second group performs it based on the instructions – as a music reading task.
