This song is a creative way to work on both musical and non-musical goals. “Rhythm Sticks Mix” is written in a follow-the-leader type style: the leader plays a rhythm, and the participants echo it back.
“Rhythm Sticks Mix” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Improve fine motor skills
- Increase ability to duplicate a pattern
- Increase ability to utilize palmar grasp
- Increase sustained attention
For an added challenge, encourage participants to create their own rhythms for their peers or facilitator to duplicate!
