Ok Now we are going to read rythems rather than notes.These drills are very fun and very helpful for your sightreading ability.
In first few lessons we only deal with notes (not rests)
We are having drills on 2/4,3/4 & 4/4 beats.This drill contains the excercise for 2/4 beat.
You should be steadily counting 1,2 1,2 1,2 & so on.
If you find a quater note you clap for the duration of one number.If it's a minim (half note) your clap should last for a 2 counts.Got it?
You can also pluck a string instead of clapping.It's your choice.But clapping is interesting (atleast for me)
Ok here is the drill
