The Rhythmic Arts Project

Using Rhythms to Teach Academics and Life Skills By Eddie Tuduri,

The Rhythmic Arts Project educates individuals with Intellectual and Developmental
Disabilities by embracing a curriculum that encompasses rhythm as a modality to address basic
life and learning skills as well as reading, writing and arithmetic. There is always a need for
innovative teaching in our society. The Rhythmic Arts Project accomplishes this by other than
conventional means. Introducing this rhythmic concept gives the participants a fun way to
approach basic life skills and scholastics that is as enjoyable to learn, as it is to teach; a win-win
situation all around.
SKILLS ADDRESSED
The TRAP program has been successful in addressing cognitive, emotional, and physical
disabilities. Through inventive exercises, the program teaches and enhances skills such as:
maintaining focus, using memory, socialization, turn taking, sequencing, sign language, Laterality,
developing leadership, recognition and use of numbers, shapes, and colors, spatial awareness,
fine and gross motor coordination, following instructions, and communication. Group teaching
occurs in an environment that is supportive, cooperative and fun, and members naturally develop
confidence and a positive self-image.
