Rhythm and Dance Study
For five- and six-year-olds who speak English
In this study, you will complete a short survey about your child's experience with music, and then two tasks. In Task 1, your child will listen to cartoon animals playing the drums and pick the animals who are the best drummers for dancing (8-10 minutes).
In Task 2, your child will dance along with drumming (about 5 minutes). For this, you will need to set up a "dance space" for your child to keep them in the camera frame, and for their safety while dancing. For the dance space, you could use a rug or foam mats on the floor, mark a space with masking tape, or set some pillows in a circle. The space should be at least 4' x 4' (approx. 1.2m x 1.2m).
