“Steady Beat” - a drum song!
Jul 03, 2020
Today’s video gives you a peek into our July course. This simple tune gives your child the perfect opportunity to practice keeping a steady beat, and reinforcing musical concepts.
We’re also including written notes from the course that we provide to parents:
How to prepare:
- Grab a drum (anything that you are comfortable having your kiddo strike with a mallet or bang on with their hands! Plastic bins or pots and pans are good substitutes if you don’t have an actual drum)
How to extend/adapt:
- Explore different ways to play a steady beat with your child. On the drum or away from the drum.
- Explore quarter notes, eighth notes, and half notes with different types of movements. Quarter notes could feel like marching, eighth notes like running, and half notes like a slow walk.
What your child is learning:
- Rhythmic values, steady beat and sense of rhythm, various musical concepts, gross motor skills.
