2 New Intermediate Activities
Long-and-Short - To teach children to differentiate between long and short notes, begin with a simple demonstration. A triangle with an easy-to-hold handle is perhaps the most practical instrument to illustrate this concept.
Fast-and-Slow - This is a slightly more advanced exercise. Select any one of the rhythmic phrases from the Rhythm-Talk exercise and beat, tap, clap, or shake it for your child.

Our First Activity Contest Winner
Our first-ever Classroom/Group Activity winner is Ron Hope of the Short Stop Youth Center in Columbus, Ohio. "The kids and I sit in a circle, and then we shake and play our instruments and scream as loud as we can to awaken our drum spirits. We then play a game called "Spreading Rumors". I play a short rhythmic piece and ask my neighbor to repeat what I played for them to their neighbor. After the beat goes all around the circle, we see how the beat has changed from the original that I played."
