SNAP! Rhythm Game Cards

easy rhythm game

Make teaching and testing Rhythm Skills a bundle of fun… With 80 snap cards, and approximately 40 different note values and combinations, rhythm need never get boring again!

Flexible – you can choose which cards to include in this rhythm game – use only cards students know, to test their prior learning, or add new note cards, to get them curious and extend their knowledge base!

VersatileNeed a game for early elementary students?  Select the cards with all the basic notes and rests.  Need a rhythm game for late elementary students?  Add in all the tricky note values and patterns too!  Sick of playing Snap?  No problem – instructions are included to turn this into a Memory Match game for variety!

Handy – Useful for 2 to 6 players, this game can be played in a group class, piano party, or a private lesson.  You can also use them as Flash Cards!

Link this game to the concept of relative note values, with the NOTE VALUE PYRAMID Posters – showing the time value relationship between all the basic note values.  Includes the poster with both US and UK terms, and in 3 sizes (Note: this poster set is the same as the one included in our Rhythm Builder Bundle – if you already have that one, then just select the ‘SNAP! Rhythm Cards only’ purchase option.  View the Rhythm Builder resources – HERE)

Improving students’ rhythm skills is very important – and also improves sight reading fluency, ear training, composition and theory skills.
