RHYTHM READING

The video below is going to teach you how to read rhythms. It uses the sounds:

 

Ta (sounds like car)
Ti-Ti (sounds like tea-tea)

 

The video helps you keep a track of where you are too:

To keep you in time, follow the sounds as they turn red.


Each rhythm pattern is played four times before moving onto the next.

Have a go at saying these rhythms first, then try tapping them on a table, or clapping them at the same time.
