Beat Blocks are a great tool.  Composing, improvisation, and rhythm development are all made easier with this visual tool.  My students can arrange new rhythms and understand how rhythms and notes fit with the beats.  I would highly recommend Beat Blocks for any general music classroom.

Testimonials

I am a substitute teacher. I have used Beat Blocks in music classes at two different elementary schools. The students love all of the activities that we  have done with the blocks. The lesson plans are easy to follow, even without any music experience.

My 6th, 7th & 8th grade students all love Beat Blocks. They easily subdivide note values with the visual aid of the blocks and quickly began to create rhythm patterns unsolicited as they collaborated in groups. And they were so excited to play with the blocks!

I showed them to one of my principals and he was impressed with the concept. I've used them with my first and second graders. They absolutely loved them! The possibilities are endless. The kids had such a great time showing how they can create and interpret rhythm patterns.

Macro Beat

Sometimes we deal with a macro beat and 6/8 time. There are blocks for those too! Composing and dictating has never been easier.
