Writing Rhythms

Second graders in Kelly Daugherty’s music classes at Idle Hour Elementary School in the Connetquot Central School District recently had a special opportunity to try their hand at rhythmic composition. Each student first wrote out his or her own unique arrangement of rhythms and beats on paper. Then, all of the “composers” were given the chance to come up to the Smartboard and input their pieces into an interactive music education software called Musicplay. Finally, using this program, each student selected an instrument, and a track of that instrument “performing” his or her rhythmic composition was played to the class.

This activity allowed the students to combine their individual creativity with their growing knowledge of rhythmic notation and they relished in hearing their compositions come to life.
