    This composition is based off of Steve Reich's "Clapping Music." The composition follows the same format but uses a familiar rhythm and phases by a quarter note, rather than an eighth note. This piece is a great way to introduce students and parents to the music of Steve Reich, minimalism, and phasing. 


    The composition comes with two version, one where the non-phasing part switches clappers every two repeates, and a second where the first clapping part contains the non-phasing part the entire time. Both versions come an instructional page where the count have been written out to aid students.
