Jazz music is something that you need to get engaged with in order to learn how to play, what could be better than getting young children to improvise music.

The best thing to do is try to inspire children to come up with new ideas and experiences while listening to music ask the children to come up with their own, this will bring out the creativity of the children.

Another creative experience that you can create for young children is to ask them to make cell phone by using Styrofoam, tin cans, or just plain cardboard. Any arts and crafts material will do the trick. Pair up the children and ask them to speak to each other on the phones with each other and use the phrases that they themselves came up with. Then the one who is listening should respond with sounds similar to the words and phrases used, this will be a fun exercise that will enable the learning instincts among children.

Encouraging kids to experiment with new combinations of symphonic tracks with dance moves, musical utensils, preset beats, etc. for them to try and come up with their own tunes. Even creating different formations for them to stand in while they do these practice rounds. But to make sure there is a specific boy or a girl who is the central figure, then switch them around until a perfect synchronization of the whole group is found.

Creativity should be encouraged by teaching the kids to find their rhythm and to make sure this happens, there should be cue cards placed before the children, they can be either through proper equipment or make a fun activity out of it, this would require art supplies and some level of supervision so that the children memorize the symbols which correspond to the relevant tune. This is easily accomplished by having them draw the symbols one by one each day and practice playing its a tune on their instruments. A simple and effective method and this will help the children twofold first by sharpening their memory as well as make them into effective little musicians in training.

Deduce the children poetry, children books, or even general chants which are heard around them in their daily lives in combination with their favorite songs which they hear on the television screens or their smart-phones or even on the radio. Have them say the lyrics and phrases from these sources, in different accents or with tongue-twisting mannerism so that they can come up with more fancier ways to add their own twist to the classics.

Create gaps in between sessions of the children laying their musical instruments, and fill the silence with solos of the instrument which fits best to differentiate the individual from the group. A good example is that of the intro of the animated series called ‘The Simpsons’ where the daughter named Lisa Simpson plays the saxophone when everyone else has gone quiet in the group.
