Let's Practice using Rhythm Syllables
Since this is a beginners lesson we will only use simple time signatures, like 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4, where the quarter note is worth 1 beat.
There are different ways of sounding or chanting rhythms- this method is just one of many. If you choose to use “Ti”, “Ta” or whatever, doesn't really matter.
But sounding the rhythms before clapping, tapping or playing, makes it a lot easier to perform even relatively complicated rhythm patterns.
This method is even easier than counting rhythm, since you will focus on the sound of the rhythm, rather than numbers.
By learning to read notes in groups or patterns you will also speed up your note reading skills.
