Product Description

MAKE A SONG – a rhythm & solfa game (using Kodaly based syllables

A great way to encourage young students to improvise and to practice aural and visual skills. Rhythmic and melodic patterns and phrasing can also be demonstrated.

Variation 1: For ages 4 to 6 Youngest students, in turns, choose the rhythm cards from a spread out pile and place them under the heart beats, forming “today’s song”. Use only the simple rhythms on page 3. Read the song together. If appropriate students write it down to take home.

Variation 2: For ages 4 to 6 The students can follow the teacher holding up a rhythm card or late clapping the rhythm and find the appropriate card.

Variation 3: For ages 7 to 10 Add the more advanced rhythms on page 4.

Variation 4: For ages 7 to 10 As students become familiar with the solfa syllable and hand signs,

add page 5. Read the song together, and write it down to take home.

Variation 5: For ages 7-10 The students can follow the teacher’s hand signs and find the appropriate card.

Duration: about 15 minutes

I have found that my students delight in being “in control” of the game. I hope it encourages them to “compose” at home. In fact, I often ask them to bring a composition to the next class.
