Rhythm Patterns for Musicians - Set A
This product is a Zip file containing PDF files for each Level in the set.
This first set of Rhythm Patterns for Musicians, Set A, uses quarter notes, half notes and quarter note rests. There are 5 different Levels in this set with 15 different rhythms in each level.
The Rhythm Patterns are designed to develop rhythmic fluency in musicians of any age. You can choose to clap these rhythms or perform them on any instrument available to you and your students.
These patterns are perfect to use at the start of a lesson as a warm up, or even as a way to check for understanding of rhythmic symbols and arrangement of patterns.
In my own classroom, I display the rhythms on the IWB for everyone to see. I then set a tempo using an online metronome. My classes firstly start by using call and response with each rhythm. After we have gone through each rhythm we start again and we clap each rhythm 4 times before going to the next one. As students’ progress and gain confidence, I use student volunteers to lead the rhythm patterns.
You could also choose to print these rhythms out and use them for composition or assessment activities.
