Multiple Note Values Upon Pulse or Beat
by: Ido from www.piano-play-it.com.


I understand your difficulty with reading rhythm; I can say that a lot of piano students have difficulties with this issue.

Rhythm is a language. The problem when reading piano music is that you have to deal with many components simultaneously: treble clef, bass clef, playing multiple notes together and above all this to understand and play the rhythm correctly.

Imagine what happened if you learned just the rhythm? I'm sure that by now you could do it fluently.

In my lessons I devote a few minutes to teaching rhythm purely. I provide my students exercises that I have made through years of teaching. In these exercises I teach the various values of rhythm, patterns, ties, coordination between hands, rests, syncopation etc.

During my lessons when I teach rhythm, I start without playing the piano. We tap the rhythm, count and clap it. Only then, after practicing the pure rhythm do I give my students piano exercises which include the rhythm pattern which has been taught.

However, we have prepared a free course which includes special lessons about rhythm:

Music rhythm

A dotted half note

The quartet rest

The half rest

The whole rest

The eighth note

Sixteenth notes

Dotted notes


Each of these lessons include explanations, audio and video examples, and piano music sheets that contain the special rhythm sign or pattern which was taught in that specific lesson.

As for multiple note values upon pulse, our lessons show the right approach for counting and practicing the rhythm.

We are also preparing a special course for reading and understanding rhythm. It will include all of the points you mentioned. We will update our website as soon this course is ready, and I recommend that you to stay in contact in order to see when we update the course on the web.

Don't hesitate to ask us any further questions,
