"I am amazed and thrilled to observe how eagerly my students reach for the bright, colourful magnetic Rhythm Board and concrete rhythmic manipulatives.

Children with differing musical capabilities and learning styles are equally excited to explore the rhythms they create and sound out on various percussive instruments.

They intuitively begin to apply and challenge their own knowledge, extending learning quite naturally into the logical 'next step'.

A wonderful aid in early musical literacy, this product is a beautiful teaching tool!!"
