Rhythm Instrument Fun

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rhythm instruments are tons of fun.  Learn strategies for using instruments that will give your students opportunities to make music with instruments --- without chaos!  You’ll use instruments to keep a beat, to create sound effects, to create percussion pieces, to explore loud/quiet, fast/slow and to help develop listening skills.  You’ll learn strategies for helping your students become better readers.  You’ll use instruments to play along with classical music, and you’ll use them to create accompaniments for stories.  You’ll improvise and create your own compositions.  This session will give you many ideas for using non-pitched percussion with your preK - Grade 5 students.
