The Elements of Rhythm, Vol. II

The Elements of Rhythm, Vol. II, explores the relative nature of notation and helps decondition a reader's typical expectations of note symbols within different metric contexts.


The fundamental building block rhythm patterns introduced in Volume I are presented here in a multi-stave music format. This allows you to see how a basic rhythm pattern can be written when using a different beat note value.


The result: the same sound, with different notation, but counted the same way in each different beat note context.


A collection of counting syllables are also presented. They occur in a series of tables for practice as stand-alone rhythms. The counting syllables are then incorporated into several variations of exercises.


Volume II is designed for use by all instrumentalists and vocalists from beginner to advanced levels of study.
