|Rhythm in Schools - Introduction|
An exciting musical journey for children - developed through practical music-making.
The Rhythm Centre works with educators,
primary schools and high schools in the following areas:
:: We bring an orchestra of sound making equipment and after a brief introduction, give plenty of opportunity for pupils to experiment and find their own rhythms which we all get to play.
:: We show how different sounds go together and what a difference tempo and tone makes.
:: We often record as we play so that pupils get instant feedback and confirmation of their wonderful ‘works in progress’.
:: It is a good idea for schools to take digital shots of their pupils in action as they do reveal some startling insights about the players!
:: It is also not uncommon for teachers to find this a little hard to grasp initially compared with the children. This occurs mainly because teachers sometimes are concerned about ‘sounding right’.
:: All that is required is that one relaxes into the process and enjoys it, for the rhythm entrains the hands leading the hands to synergise with the music being made.
