Learning Music Rhythms

  • Ziang Xu, Instructor

Learning Music Rhythms is designed to prepare new musicians, who have difficulties recognizing and executing rhythms in music. They often rely on sound recordings and major teachers to pattern the rhythms without fully aware the exact rhythmic values from the score.

Each week the class will explore and practice two or three new rhythmic patterns, starting from the very basic (whole notes, half notes, and quarter notes) in the first class. In this way, new musicians will gain a detailed knowledge of musical rhythms. Therefore, they will be better prepared for their studio study and more independent while studying on their own.
