Tsuki Rhythm Names

Here are the answers to the previous lesson. Tell us how you did in the comments below.

Can you say or sing the rhythm names by reading the stick notation from this image?

There’s a demonstration video below but try and do it without help first.

Remember for one long sound on a beat (crotchet or quarter note) we say ta.

For two short sounds on a beat (quavers or eighth notes) we say titi.

For a rest you can say sh or feel a silent beat

Challenge: Create body percussion to perform while you sing. For example clap for ta, tap each knee for titi and tap your shoulders for the rest.

Don’t forget to let us know how you got on in the comments below. Or if you’ve got any questions or issues.

Maybe you could even record yourself and share it with the community!
