Ratings and Reviews
I’m a musician and an educator. I think this is an excellent tool.
My children are now learning instruments, and I just got it for them. They really enjoy it so far. There is some room for improvement. The first level has quarter notes and eighth notes. By the third or fourth level there are sixteenth notes. For someone who has been a musician for a while, it’s fine, but for beginners, that’s a very quick progression.
From what I’ve seen, this would be perfect for a student who has been learning for a while already or can get some basic guidance from a musician. It doesn't really teach the rhythms, but you do get instant feedback.
I’d like to see an easier progression in the beginning and some assistance with learning. Rhythm instruction is closely related to language instruction. I wonder if a few small adjustments would make this a valid tool to improve reading readiness and reading skills, especially for those with dyslexia....I was just working on a literature review on this topic.
You’ll have to get in touch if you want additional consultation.
Scoring Needs Work
I love the concept, but couldn’t get the dotted eighth with a sixteenth note rhythm to work. As a result, scoring was off. I can still use it with my students, but can’t recommend they purchase it for home use. Also, where’s the outline that shows which note values are in each level? That’s really helpful in RC1.
Update: I was using speaker. There was just enough lag time to mess it up. Using iPad speaker, we’re back in business! Still want the table of contents, though!
Amazing for learning how to read rhythms
I am a music teacher and this gets my students to read music very quickly as I help count-sing. I even play it for fun!!
