Test your musical skills!

Met Opera Guild Teaching Artist Shawn Farrar shows us how we can construct and read rhythms using things we can find in our homes. Gather your pens, pencils, markers, paper clips - even pasta or sticks from an outside walk can work - then join us for some rhythm reading fun!
