About this lesson
This lesson will teach your student how to recognize different rhythm patterns in songs. The exercises are designed to teach the student to think about certain groups of notes (eg: 3, 5, 6, etc.) and to be able to play any group of notes naturally. At first this can be difficult for beginners but the result is that the student will start to be able to figure out rhythm patterns by ear faster and easier. The exercises on the lesson plan also teach the student how to come up with their own rhythm patterns and to think about how they play each pattern.
