I've done line drawings to music at a teacher's conference. I loved it so
much that I've done it with a multiply handicapped class. I haven't tried it
yet with other students. I love it. Use a large sheet of paper 12 x 18 and
a sharpie like marker. First demo how someone could draw to the music.
(While the music is on, make circles, curves, zig zag lines in the air) Then
close your eyes and enjoy making marks to interpret the music. You end up
with scribbles, but it feels great. In fact in the summer when we listen to
classical concerts in the park, I bring a small pad and a soft lead pencil
and make great abstractions (with eyes closed) Enjoy. Fran in NJ
