Creating a Rhythm composition
Rhythm: The arrangement of long and short sounds within a beat. Composer: Someone who creates music. Notation: A set of written symbols used to represent music Composition: A piece of music

Rhythm Notation Vocabulary
Whole Note Dotted Half Note Half Note Quarter Note Eighth Note Sixteenth Note Whole Rest Half Rest Quarter Rest Eight Rest

Notation Vocabulary Time Signature: Shows the beat of the music and how many beats per measure Bar line: Divides music into measures Double Bar Line: Shows the end of the composition Repeat Sign: Shows to repeat the composition or a section of the composition Measure: The group of music in between bar lines

Find the following in the composition:
Whole Note Half Note Quarter Note Eight Note Sixteenth Note Time Signature Bar Line Measure Double Bar Line Repeat Sign

Complete this pyramid so that each line equals four beats
Complete this pyramid so that each line equals four beats. Remember each note has a different number value of beats. Whole= 4 beats Half= 2 beats Quarter= 1 beat Eighth= ½ beat Sixteenth= ¼ beat

Let’s work with time signatures

Can you add these music math problems?

Let’s compose a Rhythm Composition together…
Let’s compose a Rhythm Composition together…. Requirements: measures long in 4/4 time. Use at least four different rhythms/rests. Make a “final- sounding” ending.

Rhythm Packet Practice
With a partner create four measures of rhythm in 4/4 time. When done, raise your hand for me to check the math. If correct, practice counting what you created while clapping the rhythm together (Help each other…you should sound like one person!). Make sure you are starting together, staying together and stopping together.
