Quarter Notes and Eighth Notes

The beat of a song is steady, like your heartbeat. The rhythm of the song can match the beat or go faster or slower. In this lesson, you will practice rhythms that match the beat (quarter notes in this example) and rhythms that are faster than the beat (eighth notes in this example). You will first work out the rhythm of the first measure of Bell Horses and then the rhythms of your own names!
