Abstract

The principal purpose of this study is to provide a guide for rhythm activities. It is believed that such a guide is essential in order to achieve the objectives of music education in the elementary schools. In the elementary school a balanced music program consists of listening, singing, playing, creating, and physical response to rhythm. Whenever possible, these should be combined and also integrated with other areas of the curriculum. It offers music for all -- the slow as well as the talented -- and, in so doing, does not lower the rate of progress of the more musical child.
