Watch how to play the game without passing!

If you can go outside with a group, you could try playing the game this way.

Or - if you are on a Zoom lesson with your teacher, play the game a different way. Choose 2 (or 3) different ways to keep a beat. One way must be patting your head. For example: Pat head, clap
You can start anywhere in the pattern that you like. Somewhere during the song, your teacher will play a gong or in someway signal that the music has stopped. If you have your hand on your head when the music stops, you stay in the game. If you are clapping you're out. Continue until there is a winner.
