More Rhythm Heart Beats – in 4/4
This is part two of Rhythm Heart Beats. Once a students understands the concept of eighth notes and rhythmic dictation, it is easy to move to two measure rhythmic phrases. All they have to do is keep pointing to the hearts as you tap the rhythmic phrase. If your student has trouble, you can fill in part of the phrase before hand, or the entire first measure. Sometimes I do the first measure several times and pause and then the second measure several times and pause. When the student finishes writing I do both measures again. If your students take music exams such as the Texas State Theory Test, this is a good worksheet to get them started on the rhythmic dictation part.
