Syncopated Sixteenth Notes and Dotted Eighth Notes: Lesson 9 Practice Patterns 911-920

Parts 1 and 2 of Lesson 9 feature groupings of sixteenth notes with eighth notes. Part 3 also includes sixteenths and eighths but in this case the eighth notes are placed in between the sixteenth notes, forming a syncopated rhythm. These rhythms are a bit more complicated than the ones on page 1 of the lesson, and they should be practiced slowly to feel the syncopation and feel each subdivision of the beat. Always count every subdivision.

Part 4 introduces dotted eighth notes with sixteenth notes. Read the explanation of dotted eighth notes in the Lesson 9 introduction to learn how to count them and how long to play them. Also, read the dotted eighth note practice suggestions for instruction on how to perform these rhythms accurately. You can play the patterns along with each of the audio recordings, or use the quadruple subdivision metronome at MetronomeBot.com.
