We play a lot of games together in lessons and in group classes. How can you bring those home with you?
When we think about rhythm practice, here are a few ideas:
Put on the radio, your Suzuki CD, any music: can you find and feel the beat and clap along?
*Take it to the next level by seeing if you can find the meter of the piece.
*Try conducting along!
Write your own rhythms!
Can you speak it in blue jello terms?
Can you improvise a melody to it on your instrument?
Sightread rhythms! Pull up any piece of sheet music and see if you can say the blue jellos rhythms. Maybe just see if you can find all of the jellos or the pineapples.
