The Royal Opera House

Once Upon a Rhythm Book


  • It hums and it thrums
    through day and night
    the magical, mystical
    rhythm of life!

    Follow the story of music back to the very beginning.
    Did it start with a stomp or a clap?
    This playful poem is an ode to the colourful world of music and rhythm.

    Written by James Carter and illustrated by Valerio Vidali.

    James Carter is an award-winning children's poet/non-fiction writer, he travels all over the UK with his melodica (that's Steve) to give very lively poetry/music performances and workshop, visiting well over 1200 schools and performing at Edinburgh, Cheltenham and Hay festivals.
