Add a technology twist while learning how to compose and play simple rhythms. This power point is designed to be used by the students in build mode, this allows them to move the notes and rest around creating their own 16 beat rhythm that the class will play.
This presentation begins with a review of the basic rhythm tree from whole notes to 16th notes. The interactive slides are designed in a way that will be difficult for students to make mistakes which allows students to step outside their comfort zone without the fear of messing up.
If you have a classroom iPad, this makes for a great small group activity. If not, students can take turns creating rhythms for the entire class to play.
