The idea here is that children get to play a whole SET of boomwhackers, and in this DVD children sit on the floor with a complete set in front of them, and change throughout the songs, and play different melodies and rhythms with them. They don’t need to read music, as they simply follow the animations and play when the colourful ‘Beatz’ characters bounce on the ‘Play Mat’. Of course we don’t start with all eight boomwhackers at once: they gently go through a process of building up from one, to two, then four, six and eight boomwhackers all in the same song. Children will learn important musical concepts such as pitch, rhythm and harmony, all while they are just having fun and playing in time with the animated characters.
