“I came back to school yesterday and just flipped it open and used the World Tour. My kids loved it and I had a lot of fun too! This morning, my fourth graders and I made a rhythm recipe of deep dish pizza and right now my fifth graders are in their small groups writing their rhythm stories! I can’t wait to hear them. This is a great book!”
K Gibson, Music Specialist, Coppell Independent School District

I used this book when working as a teaching artist in classrooms all over NYC. Now I am an art therapist working with foster care children, and I plan to use it again in a social skill building kids group that I am running. I love the ideas in the book, and I know that connecting with rhythm will help the kids connect in other ways too! Thanks again!
I. Marx, Art Therapist

Thank you for providing Rhythm Play! as a resource for our challenge course conference. It had a great impact on the workshop I taught.  Ropes Course Facilitators are always looking for new initiatives, and Rhythm Play! offers a relatively untapped medium in our industry.  My success in leading your activities is a testimony to the clarity of your writing.  We ended the workshop with “Rhythm Machine” and enjoyed it so much we kept our instruments and preformed it again in front of the whole conference at lunch.
