Quarter Notes and Quarter Rests: Lesson 1 Practice Patterns 108-118

These practice patterns consist entirely of quarter notes and quarter rests in 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4 time. The quarter note is always equal to one beat. For these examples, the beat is not written underneath the music, but you should still count each beat while you are performing. Make sure to practice the patterns in Part 1 of Lesson 1, too. Also, listen and play along with the recordings for each pattern. Find out more about The Fundamentals of Rhythm book by Kyle Coughlin.

Part 2. Quarter note and quarter rest practice patterns in 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4

For all of these patterns, you will hear two full measures of a metronome click before the rhythm begins. There is a high sounding click on beat one of each measure with a lower click on the remaining beats. MetronomeBot does not count for these patterns.
