I've Got Rhythm! (Ages 9 - 14)
Learn about the beat and its foundational role in rhythm. Then, learn to identify, count, and play the notes with rhythm instruments found around the house. This quick-paced class gets students playing rhythms in no time!

Students will be introduced to the world of rhythm. They will have a simple understanding of the beat and that the speed of the beat can be fast, slow, or somewhere in between just like their heartbeat. Students will be able to identify the four rhythm notes I introduce by sight and will have the confidence to count and play the newly learned rhythm notes. This lesson will leave them with a foundation to be built upon in later lessons.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music and have been teaching music for many years! I teach this lesson as an introduction to rhythm to all of my new piano students. After introducing these notes, we continue to practice them through teacher-led rhythm practice while they count and play the rhythms on a rhythm instrument. The students love doing rhythm practice in my classes!
A pot, pan or homemade shaker (beans in a jar) on which to play rhythms. Or a maraca, drum or drumsticks. Anything that makes noise works. For drawing the rhythm notes, a whiteboard and marker or paper and pencil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
