Stretchy bands are wonderful props for music class! At Ladybug Music®️ ATX, we love to use this tool during our sessions, as much as possible because they are great for development, give everyone a chance to explore music in a different way, and they are lots of fun.

Some of the many benefits of the stretchy band activities are:

  • Develops gross motor skills and promotes large movement
  • Develops coordination and spatial-awareness
  • Strengthens muscles (arms, shoulders, chest, back…)
  • Improves movement control
  • Provides a visual representation of the beat and a textural experience (thru touch and feel of fabric)
  • Encourages cooperation
  • Encourages creativity and self-expression
