Print these “Rhythm Sheets” out to use with your students. You can have them work independently with their own cardio drumming set up or share it with a partner by standing on opposite sides.
Allow your students to work through the different cardio drumming “Rhythm Sheet” challenge cards, beginning at Level 1. After the student(s) think they have mastered the pattern, have them either get a classmate or you as the teacher to watch their performance in order for them to get the check needed to progress to the next level.
The patterns get more difficult as they move through the different levels. As they improve and have mastered all the patterns, present them with different challenges such as performing a pattern at a faster tempo, combining different 8 count patterns from different “Rhythm Sheet” cards or allow them to create their own rhythms!
These cardio drumming rhythm sheets were inspired by Dave Senecal’s (@pepalooza on Twitter) Beat Sheets. Visit Dave’s Teachers Pay Teachers store (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Pepalooza) for more great resources!
