Get beginner band students reading rhythms at the beginning of each rehearsal! Project pdf file in front of the band, and have them read those rhythms! You can count, sizzle, clap, play on a note, play in a chord, play scales through them, or how ever you can creatively use them in your band room. Put on a metronome, or use one of the pre-set drum beats on your iPad GarageBand for some extra fun. No more writing rhythms on the board.
You can also use these as assessment tools in small group situations. Have students play down the line to assess their progress.
