I’ll Play a Rhythm and You Play It Back

The little chant I came up with this month is one of the many settings I use to incorporate rhythm sticks into my music therapy sessions and early childhood music classes. “Clatter Clatter Clackity Clack” is just a framework for using all of those skills — listening, grasping, reproducing a pattern, and more — while playing the rhythm sticks.

Clatter Clatter Clackity Clack Album Cover

Clatter clatter clackity clack
I’ll play a rhythm and you play it back
So listen close and then you’ll see
That you can tap your sticks like me

My turn first: (play rhythm)
Now your turn: (children repeat rhythm)

Clatter clatter clackity clack
I played a rhythm and you played it back
You listened close and now you see
That you can tap your sticks like me

Today at Listen & Learn Plus, I’m sharing my recorded version of this chant as well as links to downloads of other songs I’ve written specifically for rhythm sticks. Here are a few of those songs, in case you are looking to bulk up your rhythm stick repertoire:
