2016-2017: “A Musical Year”

Week Nineteen


Hooray for Group Class Week! We always have so much fun in group classes. It’s a refreshing change of pace for everyone and gives students the opportunity to learn together, building friendships along the way.


Our first activity was Rhythm Cups. Students learned to feel the beat and listen to each other, while also having a blast passing cups to each other, tapping cups to their foreheads, and trying to tap each other’s cups! Each student also had the opportunity to create their own rhythms that we tapped with cups.




The theme for this week’s classes was rhythm. The remainder of the class consisted of games that reviewed notes, rests, and counting.


“Monster Smash” is always a hit with students!


“Quest for Rest” and “Over the Edge” are fun group games.


Students also enjoyed our new games, “Caught in a Pot” and “Puddle Jumper.”



Reviewing music theory and rhythms can be so much fun!
