about

Rhythm in 5 just makes sense because it is based on effective pedagogical foundations. Using the activities in this book will help students’ learning become embodied which is essential for musical success. 

I would highly recommend this book to any teacher wanting to upgrade their teaching tool kit.”

You know rhythm is important. Vital, even. But many weeks you simply run out of time to work on rhythm with your students. There’s so much else to do and clapping drills are pretty dull anyway – so you leave them out. 

If that sounds like a familiar struggle, this is the book for you. 

Rhythm in 5 includes 25 different rhythm activities that can be done in 5 minutes or less with minimal equipment and which will have a massive impact on your students’ rhythm skills. The rhythm games help students to learn about beat, note values and metre through fun and movement. Every idea works on multiple levels for any instrument. Suggestions are given for how to expand each activity, make it easier or harder, and how to connect the dots with repertoire and scales. 

Start a rhythm revolution in your studio today.
