Maim That Tune

Before the game, arrange to have someone bring in a musical instrument such as a violin, guitar, etc. You can also use a piano or organ. Have the kids line up according to the number of years of music or voice lessons they’ve had (most to least). Count them off by twos to form two teams that have approximately the same musical experience. The object is to quickly guess songs your teammates play on the selected instrument. Teams will take turns having a volunteer play a song on the instrument for his/her team to guess. The volunteer chooses the song to play. Keep track of time for each team and the least time wins after several rounds have been played. If it isn’t guessed in 30 secs, the other team gets one guess. If that team guess incorrectly, 5 secs are added to their total time.
