Explore Rhythm and Meter With the Chrome Music Lab
Katie Wardrobe of Midnight Music shares her music tech lesson plan, which guides students to compose and play rhythms in different meters with Chrome Music Lab.
In March, Google launched the free Chrome Music Lab Experiments site to celebrate Music In Our Schools month and to allow users to explore the way in which music works. Peter Kirn of Create Digital Music wrote about the browser-based music tools in his article Google Are Giving Away Experiments To Teach Music And Code.
The 12 experiments that make up the Chrome Music Lab easily lend themselves to multiple uses in music education. This complete lesson plan uses the first one – Rhythm – which allows students to compose and play rhythms in different meters.
