- When playing this game with students who are struggling with rhythm, it may be best to play without the metronome and spinner. Add the metronome when the students are more comfortable with performing the rhythms.
- With a group of students, ask some to perform the rhythm on the card while others are designated to “keep the beat” by performing quarter notes when doing rhythms in quarter time.
- A student or teacher can perform the rhythm, and the other players need to figure out the rhythm and check their card for a match.
- Organize your drum circle using the Rhythm Riot cards!
