Summary

Rhythm Reading: Elementary through Advanced Training reduces the rhythms of Western music to a series of short, frequently encountered patterns. Each pattern is introduced in a step-by-step process that encourages students to read rhythms not as individual notes but as groups of notes. These groups then recur throughout the text in a variety of carefully graded exercises.
