Resource Description

A musical approach to rhythmic studies based on Igor Hudadoff’s “A Rhythm a Day,” this rhythm exercise book by Anne C. Witt can be a part of a well-balanced music program. The resource provides an intentional instructional design with clear goals and purposes, offering one rhythm pattern and scale per week to develop the rhythms, scales, sight-reading, and bowing techniques across the entire ensemble. Suitable for an advanced middle-school group or beginning high school group, this resource is designed to be part of daily practice, particularly as a warmup. Daily exercise suggestions include learning and practising the rhythms, polishing and correcting difficult areas, working on the ensemble, and leading a closure activity or game.
