Our Clock resource is one of the easiest ways to get a group performance going at home with any sounds around the house.

You can use whatever sounds you like, musical instruments, vocal sounds or any objects that make interesting sounds. The challenging part of this is to find really good sounds to make so spend some time exploring the house.

Is there an instrument hiding away somewhere that hasn't been taken out in a while?

Is there a pot in the kitchen that makes a nice ringing sound?

Can you make an instruments out of household items, like rice in a bottle as a shaker?
