Meridee Winters Rhythmaze - Rhythm Drills Game is a fun and versatile game for drilling and building rhythm skills. It is also a great tool for working on tracking skills with younger students who are just learning the concept of reading from left to right or who are struggling with playing music fluidly from line to line.
Ways to play:
Beginner: Tap, clap, or play a single note on your instrument to the rhythm on the page. To make it more of a maze, the teacher can use a pointer to direct the student on a less predictable path through the rhythms.
Advanced: Try playing chords or melodies to the rhythms, straight through the page or more complex path.
Tips and variations:
• Playing this game to a metronome is a great way to develop a steady internal clock.
• For a group, this game could be played with everyone clapping/tapping the rhythm together, or moving through the group with everyone taking a turn with one rhythm box.
• This game is a great way to bring order to drum circles.
