The eyes of my youngest students always light up when I pull Little Hands on Rhythm off the shelf. The children love creating simple rhythms with the magnet board and pieces! I appreciate the fact that the board fits perfectly across my piano's music stand, and the magnet pieces stay tidy and organized in the box.
Little Hands on Music is a wonderful resource, and I am proud to support a Canadian business. I have received excellent, personalized customer service from Teaching Aids for Music. I highly recommend their product!"

My younger kids are enjoying the new teaching tool. I ask them to take the rhythm of the melody they are working on, and place it on the white board, and then to clap the rhythm. It is working especially well with the ones that are just switching over from note value counting to counting the beats.

Using Little Hands On Rhythm in both my piano studio and in the classroom made the teaching of beat, pulse, rests, bar lines, and time signature easy and fun. The kids loved the manipulatives and came up with their own ideas – such as composing right away. Some of my students refused to go home when their lesson time was up, because of the Little Hands On Rhythm activities.
The large size of the manipulatives is great for 'little hands' and the colour and presentation are beautiful. Little Hands On Rhythm is a great teaching aid that I will definitely incorporate in my practice."
