For the Kodaly classroom!
"Old Brass Wagon" is a great American play-party song to introduce sixteenth notes (tika-tika or tiri-tiri) and/or dotted eighth, sixteenth (tim-ka or tim-ri). It is also great to review low la and low sol.
Rhythmic notation - simplified
*Note, I have simplified the sixteenth note introduction to not include the tim-ka. Instead, I left it as a paired eighth note. In the introduction to tim-ka, the actual notation is provided.
