9 Stimulating New Patterns of Play

If people are tentative they sometimes get locked into patterns of play. Observe the sequences in which they press the buttons and encourage and guide them to try different patterns. Use the colours and numbers on the pads to encourage users to try new sounds and new patterns.

    • Even or odd number combinations, individually, together
    • Do sums. Hear the music of the sums!
    • Come up with your own ideas
  • Playing the colours…
    • Spot the colours around you – clothes, furniture, walls, plants or tress or flowers…then find the colours on the buttons that match the colours you have seen and play the room
