    In order to benefit from the contributions of rhythmic skills for acquiring language skills and reading abilities in primary education, interactive music systems (IMS) may be useful to support teachers who lack knowledge, skills, and confidence in music teaching by providing insight in the musical process. However, little research addresses the use of IMS for use in music education in primary education and still more research on effectiveness is needed. As a first step in exploring how IMS can contribute to music education in primary education, a new social music game In the Zone (ITZ) was developed and tested.
