Sixteenth Note Groupings with Eighth Notes: Lesson 9 Practice Patterns 901-910

The rhythm patterns in Lesson 9 focus on common groupings of sixteenth notes with other note values. The lesson presents each combination of sixteenth notes with eighth notes and dotted eighth notes. The patterns on this page include groupings of an eighth note followed by two sixteenth notes, and two sixteenth notes followed by one eighth note.

As with all subdivided rhythms, you should count every part of the subdivided beat while clapping or performing them. Read the sixteenth note grouping introduction to understand these patterns better, and see the practice suggestion page for ideas on how to practice sixteenth notes more effectively.
