Learning and Creating Musical Rhythms

posted May 25, 2015, 5:20 PM by Patrick Johnson

Today students learned about the different types and lengths of notes. Students learned about
  • whole notes
  • half notes
  • quarter notes
  • eighth notes

Students also learned to clap out rhythms using these notes. We used the app Rhythm Cat on the iPad as a fun way to clap out rhythms.


Finally I introduced students to a music generating web based app called Incredibox. Incredibox is essentially a rhythm machine where students can create their own songs by adding different musical loops.
