Event Description

Strong rhythmic skills are key to enjoying a lifetime of participation in music.
As the song goes, “I’ve got rhythm, I’ve got music … who could ask for anything more!”

Join me to share ideas and activities that will build these skills in our students.
We will work through three areas of development:

  • Laying a strong rhythmic foundation
  • Introducing note values and working with rhythms
  • Helping students to apply this knowledge to the music they are learning

This seminar is violin centered but applicable to any instrument.

Course full.
