Abstract: It is a well-accepted fact that music is present in all cultures and serving many functions. This rather unique position makes anthropologists considering music as a Human Universal. Therefore, the study of music is nothing less than the study of the Human Race. This is one of the reasons supporting the importance of music education from the early beginnings of the overall educational process. Rhythm is considered by many as the most fundamental music parameter, deeply rooted in our physiology and cognitive system. Many studies have shown that from an early age children perceptually relate to rhythmic structures attempting to imitate them. This paper will present some easy rhythm games that can be used in the classroom by many different age groups. By playing in rhythmic and metrical synchrony, students will develop group awareness and will be able to respond and adjust to other students within the context of a group situation. By fostering and practicing rhythm improvisation, students will also be able to find their own individuality and creativity without losing their awareness of group integration. The proposed rhythm games are a universal language tool that can be used through many educational stages, which promote at the same time individuality and social integration.
