Last week was the first edition of grooveKIDS, which is a group percussion experience for children in grades 1 through 6. We had an enthusiastic group of students who were eager to create some rhythms.
One of the key things we focused on in this session was listening skills. Very simply, passing a rhythm around the circle, where each student listens to the player before them, then copies what they hear, and so on down the line. Simple exercises like this really refines the students’ listening skills - which is a benefit that has application in school and at home!
The next grooveKIDS event in Tuesday, April 2nd at 6:30pm. You can buy tickets right here.
