Previous studies shows that to do two musical skills simultaneosly is not easy. This is more difficult when it been taught to children. However, the Dalcroze Eurhythmics Approach is believed can ease the children to coordinate the musical skills to present a good musical performance. This is a pilot study involving sample of 31 children from a primary school in Putrajaya divided into 19 boys and 12 girls. Respondents’ achievement were analysed after 12 sessions of intervention for three months. Result shows the mean score of the coordination singing and playing kompang is 61.7 with standard division 12.47. There are 3 students scored Grade A, 10 scored Grade B, 13 scored Grade C, 4 scored Grade D and one student failed with Grade E. Because 30 students have passed the test, the reasearcher come up with the solution that the Dalcroze Eurhythmics Approach is relevant to be taught to increase children coordination skill which is sing and play percussion simultaneously.
