Rhythm for beginners
Last week I wanted to check to make sure my beginners were internalizing note values and rhythm. There seem to be always a few that struggle to write in the counting on worksheets and I wanted to create something to make it easier to understand. I am so happy with the results. My classes completed this worksheet last week by writing in the counting and they got it! All students were able to succeed and my slower learners were able to understand. After using this exercise as a worksheet I projected the image to the front and we practicing counting/plucking/air-bowing each line as part of our warm up for a couple of days. I feel it really helped solidify counting/rhythm skills. Especially that pesky dotted quarter to eighth note rhythm.
