Rhythm 7th Grade General Music
What is Rhythm? If you listen for it,
you can find rhythm
just about anywhere. in a basketball
being dribbled... raindrops
falling... hands clapping... Rhythm is what makes
music flow. Rhythm - How the beat is broken down. 4
4 Time
Signature Top Number Bottom Number number of beats per measure what kind of note gets one beat Time Signature - shows how many beats are in each measure of music. Beat - Regular, repeated pulse in music. 4
4 2
4 3
4 4 beats per measure Quarter note ( ) gets one beat. 2 beats per measure Quarter note ( ) gets one beat. 3 beats per measure Quarter note ( ) gets one beat. Note Pyramid Whole Note 4 beats Half Note 2 beats Quarter Note 1 beat Eighth Note 1/2 beat Sixteenth Note 1/4 beat In 4
4... Whole Note ( ) and Whole Rest ( ): 4 beats Half Note ( ) and Half Rest ( ): 2 beats Quarter Note ( ) and Quarter Rest ( ): 1 beat Eight Note ( ) and Eighth Rest ( ): 1/2 beat Sixteenth Note ( ) and Sixteenth Rest ( ): 1/4 beat Remember! Notes are SOUND.
Rests are SILENCE. Syncopation Syncopation - stress on the weak beats. Write in the correct rhythm. Syncopation Syncopation - stress on the weak beats. Did you get it right? 1 +2 + 3 +4 + 1 +2 +3 +4 + What does a dot
do to a
note? A dot adds half the
value to the note. Dotted Quarter Note ( ): 1 1/2 beats Dotted Half Note ( ): 3 beats How many beats would a dotted whole note get? THINK! What is a measure? Music is divided into chunks,
called "bars" or "measures". This makes
the music
easier to
follow. Each measure consists of a certain number of beats. The amount of beats per measure is determined by the Time Signature. Measures are divided into sections by bar lines. A double bar line
indicates that the
end of the piece
has been reached. Double Bar Line How do you count rhythms? Traditionally, rhythms
are counted using a
combination of numbers
and sounds. 4
4 1 2 + 3 4 Example: The quarter notes are counted as 1 2 3 4. The eighth
notes are
counted as "and"(or +). 1 1 1 + + e a A quarter note would be counted as "one". Eighth notes are counted as "and" (or +). Sixteenth notes are counted as "e" and "a". Syncopation occurs anytime
that emphasis is placed on
a beat that is not usually
emphasized. Dotted Whole Note gets 6 beats! Time to test your knowledge!
"Rhythm Relay" Measure - a measurement of time that contains a
specific number of beats defined by a time signature. As evenly as you can, count to 4.
Repeat the counting over and over again.
Try to make sure each number is evenly spaced. TRY THIS! GUESS WHAT? You are counting 4 beats
in a measure, and each number
is the value of a quarter note!
Congratulations! Now, while counting, clap your hands only when you say "1."
Hold your hands together to simulate holding the note until you have said 4, then clap again on 1. (1 2 3 4)...
Continue to count 1-2-3-4, but clap an extra time between each count.

It might help to say "1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and" so you stay even.

Once you get this down you are clapping eighth notes! 1+2+3+4+... What note did you just clap? Your Turn! How would you clap/count half notes? (1 2) (3 4) Time to try some on your own! Get into pairs.
Work on new rhythm counting handout.
If you have questions, raise your hand. Rhythm
