Subdividing the Eighth Note Beat with Sixteenth Notes: Lesson 13 Practice Patterns 1301-1312

Lesson 12 introduced rhythm patterns in which the eighth note is equal to one beat. In Lesson 13, we will subdivide that beat in half with sixteenth notes. Read the introduction to this lesson to learn exactly how to count and play different note values when the eighth note equals one beat. Remember that sixteenth notes in these time signatures are equal to half a beat. Read the practice suggestion page for ideas on how to practice rhythm patterns with a subdivided eighth note beat. Listen to each recording below to ensure that you are playing the rhythms correctly.
