This activity is an adaptation of the popular game, Telephone. Participants sit in a circle and the therapist begins by whispering the title of a song into the ear of the person seated to their right. That person in turn whispers whatever he/she heard into the ear of the next person. Individuals are not allowed to ask their neighbor to repeat the title. If the title of the song makes it around the circle without changing, the therapist plays the song. This encourages listening skills, social interactions, as well as focus of attention. Songs should be the group's preferred music.
