When your primer piano students play in 3/4 time does it sound an awful lot like 4/4 time?
Do they hold the final note in every measure for one beat longer than necessary?
I don’t blame them!
Most music, games, and activities for primer piano students are created in 4/4 time. So, fixing rhythm problems is as simple as giving your kids opportunities to have fun in 3/4 time.
In today’s post, we’re sharing Rhythm and Rubies: a board game that explores 3/4 time.
Before You Download Today’s Game
While today’s board game works well as a standalone activity, it works wonders when paired with our newest primer book, The Cat, the Mermaid, and the Soaking Wet Songbook.
Released on Tuesday, this book helps primer students gain confidence playing in middle C position and 3/4 time.
Like all of the resources in the Very Useful Piano Library, The Cat, the Mermaid, and the Soaking Wet Songbook contains music and so much more!
Inside you will discover cute songs with wonderful lyrics, note reading, sight reading, and rhythm games, a practice tracker, and a certificate of achievement.
