This game develops musical skills and focuses on rhythm while playing. Through the exercises the participants will be able to percept and follow the rhythm with improving focus and creativity.
Participants sitting in a circle or in a row.
First participant in the row (or one chosen in the circle) taps a longer rhythm on the hand of the second participant sitting next to. After that this second participant taps this very same rhythm to the next participant and so on.
