As a Kindermusik educator I am always stressing the importance of your child feeling, learning, playing, following and understanding Steady Beat. Fellow Kindermusik Educator Jeanne Lippencott put it very  nicely…

Steady Beat

One of the first musical skills to develop is the ability to keep a steady beat. This skill is extremely important, of course, for future musical experiences, but it is also important in everyday life. Think of all we do that requires regularly paced repeated motion (a sense of steady beat!): walking, running, riding a bicycle, cutting with scissors, bouncing a ball, and more.
