Quick Notes



We are working hard on identifying and performing quarter notes, eighth notes (beamed together, which means two eighth notes=one quarter note), and quarter rests in 4 beat patterns.


Each symbol or pairing of symbols are worth one beat each. Here are what they look like:


quarter note:  quarter note   eighth notes (beamed) Beamed Eighth Notesquarter rest   Quarter Rest 



Please practice making four-part rhythmic patterns by clapping rhythms with the quarter and eighth notes, and by doing a "two hand shoulder touch" for quarter rests.


When clapping the notes and rests, sounds can be made with these music symbols as well! Here's how you say them as you clap themquarter note= Ta      Beamed Eighth Notes= Ti-ti (tee-tee)  Quarter Rest=

rest (shoulder tap)


How many different 4 beat rhythms can you make? Try it and have fun together!
