Counting Rhythm 2


Extend the counting system to include dotted notes.

Extending the Counting System

Dotted notes don’t actually change anything about the counting system! We already have ways to talk about the beat and half way to the next beat, all a dot does is go to the half way point! Instead the lesson is more like a gradual step up from the previous one. Certain dotted rhythms are very common and are used here.

Like before, try reading these out loud with a metronome first. Then go ahead and press play and see how close you got.
