What do I play and how?
Musical instruments and home alternative instruments (things around the home which you could use) are suggested for each Adventure so you do not need a cupboard full of percussion. For example, Tupperware containing pasta/rice/lentils/beans can make shakers. Ultimately, it is the child's choice as to instrument in any event.
Tuned percussion is not included save for an occasional appearance of the xylophone or chime bars, but these are purely an optional extra. Not having them does not stop the Adventure from being effective.
For instruments such as castanets and tambourines the classes include suggestions how to make these.
What about the music?
Each Home Adventure comes with a suggested playlist.
We recognise that you may have your own favourite versions of nursery rhymes, children's songs, classical music and so these playlists are just a suggestion. There is no reason you cannot use your own versions but these versions have often been chosen because they are instrumental only.
If you want to use Harmony's Music Club's suggested playlists, Harmony's Music Club has its own YouTube channel with the playlists and additional video material. Playlists are also publicly available on Spotify and Apple Music by searching 'Harmony's Music Club - [... name of class] at Home'.
