• This 'free formation' game is quick to play and greatly enjoyed by students!

  • It is terrific for practising a strong, heavy beat as children pretend to be dinosaurs.

  • Also useful for preparing, making conscious and practising the rhythmic element 'too-oo-oo-oo' (semibreve / whole note).

  • Students can easily see 4 beats in each bar - great for teaching or practising 4/4 metre!
