Just thought I’d share a couple of Valentine’s Day related resources from my blog!
Heartbeat Charts activity
This activity is a staple for my monthly “Piano Parties” with my students. It’s such a good activity for working on rhythm and ear training.
Here is how the activity works: Each student is given a heartbeat chart and some game tokens (I use glass baubles from the floral aisle). The teacher claps or chants a prepared rhythm and asks the students to repeat it back together. Once they have internalized the rhythm, students notate the rhythm on their heartbeat charts using game tokens.
