Syncopated Subdivisions: Lesson 7 Practice Patterns 701-710

These practice patterns focus on syncopated subdivisions in 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4 time signatures. Part 1 features eighth notes followed by rests that occur on the beat. Part 2 features quarter notes on the second half of the beat. View page 2 for more types of syncopated subdivisions.

Read the introduction on syncopations to ensure that you understand syncopated rhythms and how to count and perform them. When learning to play syncopated rhythms, it is essential to count every subdivision of the beat. Also, read the practice suggestions for syncopations to learn how to perform these rhythms accurately.

More Practice Patterns: Syncopated rhythms with dotted quarter notes on the second half of the beat, and syncopations using ties, patterns 711-720.
