What's one of the learning musician's major challenges? To read and write rhythmic notation. To gain understanding of pulse and subdivision. To develop a strong and independent sense of rhythm that enables him or her to play or sing alongside other musicians.
This rhythm reference chart offers a very handy graphical representation of the basics of rhythm, including time signatures, note values, rests, dotted values and tuplets. Let the student carry this sheet alongside their other music material, or hang it poster-sized in your classroom or band room. Color-coded beat representation adds clarity and helps involve more senses for a more effective learning!
