Reviews

  • I got this Rhythm Builder bundle to use with the children that I teach. I was looking for something that would make rhythm and duration concepts more visual for them. I am using it in private instrumental lessons, and also in a small group theory class. I really love this kit because it feels very 'hands on' – the fact that the Spatial Note Cards, and Workspace Book bars, have all the different note values relative to each other in physical size & space is awesome. I love the physicality of it! And the posters and handouts are good because they show all these note values in order and in relation to each other – easy to remember! I will be using this rhythm teaching kit a lot.
    Thanks! 🙂
