Announcement    The basic function of the Beat Blocks is to provide students a concrete manipulative to aid in introducing and comprehending the abstract concepts of steady beat, beat versus rhythm, note subdivisions, the layering of musical elements that create a complete musical work. It also serves as an aid in assessing students’ understanding of rhythmic complexities.

I use Mega Bloks Maxi blocks to make these, purchased in stores or online. One pack of 80-100 blocks will make you at least 2 sets. If you're unable to purchase blocks to make your own or have specific needs, feel free to contact me and I can gather the materials and make them for you for a small fee.

Beat Blocks lessons are compiled in a method book complete with original lessons and guides for implementation. Check my website for more information. An interactive iBook will be released soon!

Beat Blocks® - Building Musical Minds

I made my first set of Beat Blocks as a visual manipulative to use in my classroom, and when the kids asked to play with them, how could I say no? So I made a ton of sets, found them to be very helpful for composition, dictation, and discovering new rhythmic possibilities, and the kids helped me to find ways to use them to teach melody, countermelody, dynamics, and chord structure all with Mega Blocks. Now I have a website, shop, and officially own the trademark! They're now being used in several countries (Abu Dhabi, Australia, Canada, to name a few), and all over the USA. They're being featured in Orff certification courses and workshops through the midwest and the east coast. Make your own or I'll make them for you, it doesn't matter, but try out this fun new way to "build musical minds"!
