      Hi Veronica!
      Let us know how it goes! I use it also to demonstrate the difference between correct rhythm and incorrect rhythm when students have trouble understanding the difference. It helps the students know what to do to correct the rhythm. I also have a sticky note rhythm for triplets. (Not shown in the video.) Enjoy!
