The benefit of online rhythm games for musicians

Can online games really help improve rhythm skills? The answer is: absolutely! Our online rhythm games are not only designed so that you can increase your rhythmic abilities, but they’re also fun. 

Have you ever been working on a challenging piece of music and need a fun and engaging brain break? These online games are perfect for those times and still count towards actual practice time! Piano practice doesn’t need to always be rigorous and challenging – it can be fun and explorative too. These games can help bring those elements out in your daily practice.

Free online rhythm resources from Hoffman Academy

Hoffman Academy offers lots of free resources that can help you improve your rhythm reading, composition, and understanding. These include Downloadable Rhythm Cards that can be used to dictate songs (this means to listen and figure out what you’ve heard) along with Mr. Hoffman in the lesson videos, to compose rhythms on the heartbeat mats, and to practice difficult passages from your songs.

Another great resource is our Simple Meter Rhythm Chart. This chart is a handy way to keep track of the different rhythms that you’ve learned in your lessons with Mr. Hoffman.

Do you have trouble remembering all of the different rhythm syllables and words? This Rhythm Words Guide is another handy way to help you remember while you’re practicing!

Need help composing rhythms? Check out this video lesson with Mr. Hoffman where he leads us through the process of rhythm composition. 

Remember that all music has a heartbeat, just like any human, dog, cat, or other animal. Our blog article Building Rhythm Skills in the Beginning Musician can help you understand why beats and rhythms are important. This will help you on your journey to mastering even the more complicated rhythms in the songs or pieces of music that you are learning by helping you find the inner beat of all music.

Need some more tips on Learning to Read Rhythms and How to Count Rhythms? These articles contain tips and tricks on the intricacies of note reading and make them easier to count and master.

Have you ever lived in an English-speaking country like the UK or Australia and heard different names for the notes than what Mr. Hoffman says in our videos? Check out our article What’s a Quaver? to learn the different names for the note names in English-speaking places outside of the US.

Premium member online rhythm games and resources from Hoffman Academy

Hoffman Academy’s premium rhythm games include Rhythm Shredder. In this game, you must lead skateboarder Rae through the skatepark by tapping the spacebar to the correct rhythms. Be careful! If you’re too quick or too slow, Rae will fall off her skateboard and you’ll have to start the level over again. Make sure to wear headphones or connect your device to a speaker so that you can hear the awesome music as you play this game! 

Another fun game is Rhythm Train. You’ll also need speakers or headphones for this game. To play, you must listen to the recordings for each train car and decide which rhythm you heard. Then you place that rhythm in the correct box. This game has eight fun levels that can take you from elementary through intermediate level rhythmic challenges. 

Our online store has Mr Hoffman’s famous Heartbeat Mat that he often uses in his videos. This is included in our premium memberships, but if you aren’t a premium member, you can still purchase and download it from our store.
