Tapping to the Tunes
Skill for Bub: Mind builder
A technique to teach your child rhythm.
Lightly tapping on your child’s body as you sing to her is a stimulating way to enhance her experience with music.
Get the Beat Going
- Sing all of the words to a familiar song through once.
- Then tap out the beat as you silently mouth out the words in a dramatic fashion. This allows her to feel the rhythm without any other distractions.
- Or, sing a song while tapping faster in double time or slower in half time.
- You can also act out the words of a song with animated hand movements.
Any of these ways are sure to please — and engage — your little listener.
