PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Rhythm Judo is a program in which students attempt to independently master nine short rhythmic pieces or “belts.” New rhythms are added in each piece, and the difficulty increases as students progress through the program. Students can play each piece on buckets, drums, chairs, or even the floor! This set is a great addition to bucket drumming units and music concerts. Click on the preview to view 10 pages from this product.

This set also includes printable pages that can be stapled together to form student packets. These pages include an outline of important information for each “belt,” a poster describing the steps for learning a song independently, a progress chart, class list chart, and award template

Information About The Music
This set includes notation for nine original rhythmic pieces. Each piece includes rhythm-only notation to add to student packets AND full piano accompaniment. Don’t play the piano? I also included an MP3 recording for each song!
Appropriate Grade Levels
The first three “belts” in Rhythm Judo can be played by students in third grade and up (assuming your third graders have learned the rhythms included in those songs). After that, each song increases slightly in difficulty. The brown and black belts are very difficult for students to learn independently. They are usually only mastered by students in 4th grade and up. Make sure to read the description below to identify the rhythms and time signature your students need to know for each belt.
What If My Students Don’t Know All Of The Rhythms In Each Song?
If your students have not mastered some of the rhythms that appear in the higher belts like red, brown, and black, consider taking time out of Rhythm Judo to teach these new rhythms. I usually wait until at least three or four students have reached the belt containing the new rhythms and then teach that rhythm to the class as a whole.
