Bassam A. Mismar, Sumaia M. Ikhweileh

The objectives of the study were to identify the effect of the training program accompanied with musical rhythm on the skill level of female students in the gymnastics course at Yarmouk University. As well as to Identify the mean differences in the post measurement among the level of skill performance in the gymnastics course according to groups “experimental and control". The quasi experimental design was used as a research method, the sample of the study was (40) students chosen on purposive way from female students in the school of physical education at Yarmouk University who were enrolled in gymnastics (2) course. Ss were distributed randomly into two equal groups (n=20). The program was designed and applied by utilizing musical rhythm during instructional sessions. The results of the study show that the value of (t) test of the experimental group for the skill level in pre and post measurements was at statistically significant value at (α≤0.05) for the benefit of the post measurement. Also, the values of (t) for skill performance in gymnastics indicate statistically significant differences between the means of the skill performance of the sample due to the variable of the group and for the benefit of the experimental group. The researchers recommend using musical rhythm in teaching -learning sessions in order to improve the performance in other practical courses, especially with the courses that require high consistent performance.
