The Rhythm Circle Method

Rhythm Circle’s multisensory approach means that our students:

  • LISTEN to music. Live music is used extensively.
  • Various instruments ranging from the keyboard to drums and percussion instruments are used.
  • Students are also encouraged to bring in their own instruments for use in our sessions.

FEEL the shape of new symbols.

We love the hands-on approach: 
  • drawing.
  • painting.
  • making.
  • tracing.


New signs and symbols are introduced visually.

Frequent repetition of seeing and using these symbols encourage a better understanding of the signs used in music notation.


Wriggly, squiggly children like activity!

Our games and activities are specially designed to make learning music a 3-dimensional process.

Even the most active of kids love our Body Percussion sessions, Musical versions of Hopscotch, Bowling, Snakes and Ladders, Tic Tac Toe, Dominoes, Bingo, and Snap.

Her teaching journey has taken her from community classes at the Cumbernauld Music Trust to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Junior Academy students and coaching young musical prodigies at the Purcell School.
