Rhythm Rulz

Your students will enjoy learning to count and play rhythms by using Rhythm Rulz just a few minutes a week. Rhythm Rulz uses tried-and-true rhythm flashcard concepts, but updates them with 21st century technology. 230 rhythm slides allow music educators and private instructors to teach and practice rhythm counting with their students.

The innovative "Rhythm Ruler" will help students understand duration (length of note) much more quickly and thoroughly. Rhythm Rulz software is designed for use with your ensemble (band, orchestra, or choir), yet is flexible enough to be used by individual students.

Rhythm Rulz teaches students with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles. It presents rhythms in a logical sequence in the Study Mode. Students understand the rhythms from a cognitive standpoint through the use of the "Rhythm Ruler" and the "down-up arrows."

Regular practice with the rhythm slides in the Practice Mode reinforces counting as a psychomotor skill. It is easy to count, clap, or play the rhythms as a class. Practice them in a logical sequence, or challenge your students by presenting the rhythm randomly.

Rhythm Rulz works with any counting method. However, two counting systems are included: the traditional "1 E + A" and an exceptionally effective "down-up" system that relates counting to foot taps.
