Sensory Symphony is a story that shows many unique ways to make music. This story demonstrates how sounds can be found all around us, and sometimes the tools that help us feel our best can also make fun music!




Sensory Symphony is a story that shows many unique ways to make music.  In Ms. H’s music class, students do not always like to engage in music in a “typical” way.  In order to discover different ways to make music, Ms. H brings out the sensory bin! Pop-its, fidgets, playdoh, and chewies make their way into the song, each with a different sound.  Students use the sounds of spinners, shakers, buttons, and more to create their parts, and when the ensemble comes together, a wonderful piece has begun. The ensemble plays their sensory tools to create a masterpiece- a sensory symphony!’
