October 20 Rhythm of Math Teacher Training
10th International Body Music Festival Bay Area MiniFest 2018 presents:
October 20 Rhythm of Math Teacher Training
Professional Development workshop for Classroom and Music Teachers
Arts Integration in Mathematics Learning
Using Body Music to teach Math Concepts and Skills
led by Keith Terry and Chris Read


The kinesthetic and musical attributes of this program have greatly enhanced instruction, as well as increased student engagement in the core math subjects. Additionally, Rhythm of Math is an excellent example of an innovative method to increase student achievement by addressing the multiple intelligences and divergent learning styles of our students.
Karen Haynes, Principal - Lafayette School, Oakland, CA


An integrated music and mathematics program that uses Keiths Body Music Rhythm Blocks to teach math concepts and skills, The Rhythm of Math engages students in learning and applying essential mathematical concepts, while performing, studying, and composing rhythms. Rhythm Blocks are a technique that is easy to learn, even for teachers and students with little or no music experience. They have certain mathematical qualities that make them ideal for learning properties of natural numbers, flexible ways of conceiving of multiplication and fractions, division, ratios, proportions, and measurement.

In The Rhythm of Math lessons, the enjoyment and challenge of playing and creating rhythms motivates students to learn mathematical concepts while studying the underlying structure of a wide range of musical patterns. Mathematics then becomes a creative tool that students use to compose their own rhythmic music. Using math to notate and compose rhythms provides students with concrete examples of how key mathematical concepts can be applied to real world situations, giving students an opportunity to use mathematics to solve problems in a creative context. Exploring math concepts with rhythms engages the senses of touch, hearing, and sight as well as movement. Students feel and hear patterns as the number of beats are added, multiplied or divided.

Even though I knew all the lessons I understand the concepts better now that I have learned Rhythm Blocks. I would like to learn more math using Rhythm Blocks because I love math and music but usually math is figuring out problems in your head however this Rhythm Blocks is a hands-on experience.  Brianna
