Sixteenth Notes: Lesson 8 Practice Patterns 801-812

These rhythm practice patterns introduce sixteenth notes, all in groups of four, in 2/4 and 3/4 time signatures. The patterns also include quarter notes, half notes, dotted half notes, and rests. Every pattern has an audio example to practice along with, as well. Besides playing the rhythms with the recordings, use MetronomeBot to play the patterns at different tempos. The quadruple subdivision metronome is very helpful for playing the sixteenth notes evenly and accurately.

Make sure to count every beat and every subdivision of the beat for these rhythms. Read the introduction to sixteenth notes for an explanation of these note values. Also, read the sixteenth note practice suggestions for ideas on how to improve your rhythm skills when playing sixteenth notes.
