Percussion Set and Beginning Rhythm Giveaway

Of all of the instruments in our family collection, it's the backpack full of hand-held percussion instruments that gets used the most.  I store it near the toys and the kids love to parade around the home with them.  But it's not all fun and games, we practice rhythm and counting with them too.  I have used them with my piano students.  I have taken them to work with groups of small children.  Having a collection of well-built percussion toys can be very handy!

The fun doesn't stop with the kit though- having a few percussion instruments sets the stage for learning about rhythm, and our winner will receive a copy of our most popular product, Beginning Rhythm as well.  Good luck!

Inspiro Kids Percussion Set

I have looked at several different starter kits online and have chosen to feature the Inspiro Kids set in our giveaway.  Many of the other sets looked cheaply made or didn't have a very good sound, but one Amazon reviewer made a sound-clip video and these seem to have a good tone for percussion toys.  I have not personally tried this kit out because I already have a nice collection of instruments, most of which I purchased individually at a local music store, but this kit covered the basics well and I chose it because it's the percussion set I would recommend to someone who is just starting their collection.  The basics are here- a small tambourine, a triangle (by far the most popular in group settings), claves (best for keeping the kids focused during rhythm exercises), maracas, and jingle bells.

Beginning Rhythm manipulatives

Beginning Rhythm was our very first product and it has remained one of our staple features.  Featuring over 200 printables, there is sure to be something in the toolkit to help budding musicians learn the basics of rhythm.  There are standard rhythm games like rhythm bingo and rhythm flashcards, nursery rhyme worksheets, and best of all, a large-scale rhythm board with rhythm cards, pictured on the right.  The instruction booklet has plenty of ideas to get you started, as well as a suggested scope and sequence for the youngest learners.

Below you can learn more about Beginning Rhythm.  Good luck!

About the author 


My name is Tamsyn and I love music. I got my bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from USU. I spent many years teaching private piano lessons until I had children of my own. I have attended several children workshops on how to teach children music. I really like the Kodaly method, but have adapted a lot of different techniques for my own children.
