Ocean Drum Experience

Group Ocean Drum 

This video was taken by an occupational therapist who provides music experiences for a variety of children in the SA area.  Here he has them sharing an ocean drum and working as a team to get the balls to go around.  This is a great activity for improving the auditory system while using it to take part in team work of making the smooth ocean sounds.  Background music could also be added to help them keep the balls moving to the beat.  Depending on the needs of the clients, upbeat music could be used, as well as music that helps to calm.  This can be a great outlet for stress.

Great for auditory and social skills, calming, and tactile input.
