Rewind the video to practice all of the rhythms.
Grab a partner and have them play one part while you play the other.
Finally, use some instruments or home made drums, shakers or body percussion to play the Spring rhythms.
In addition, you can use your piano, guitar, ukulele or other pitched instrument to practice learning note names, strings and pitches.
Try playing all of the rhythms on one note.
Or, try playing the rhythms on the notes in one chord, like C.
You’d play C E G.
Great way to learn your chords!

Play your pattern for a friend or teacher, or parent.
Next have the other person play only SUN or RAIN rhythms.
Put your parts together!
Now you are making music with your spring rhythms.
