Are you looking for a FUN way to introduce composition? Have students print, cut and stick together the rhythmic dice and roll away to create a composition.
There are three different levels of dice from simple crotchet (quarter notes) and quavers ( eighth notes) to more complex semiquaver (sixteenth note) rhythms. Alternatively, students can create their own dice using the blank template.
This task can be used to reinforce time signatures, by writing compositions in different time signatures. Rhythms can be performed using percussion or body percussion. The concept of dynamics could also be used.
