Rhythm Rescue!
Musical Activities to Expand Rhythmic Vocabulary
By Lynn M. Brinckmeyer
54 pages
Grades 4 - 12

Singers can find it a challenge to be able to see and immediately reproduce a correct rhythm. These exercises and suggestions are designed to expand the rhythmic vocabulary of singers. Many of the exercises incorporate a physical gesture to aid learning. There are two different sections in the book: Isolated Rhythm Activities and Rhythms with Pitch or Text. The second section contains many traditional folk song melodies. All teaching strategies support required curriculum and state and national music standards in different settings. Most of the activiites can be used with differrent songs in the book. They can also be tranferred to barred and non-pitched percussion instruments and the peformance literature of the choir.

Permission is given to reproduce the designated reproducible pages.
