Music Lessons for the Young Child: RHYTHM LESSON 4 Adding Rests to our Rhythms

The next step to our rhythm lessons is to add rests to the icons we know how to read. We are only going to use quarter note rests that get one beat.

Music Lessons for the Young Child: RHYTHM LESSON 9 - Notation with rests

It is now time to add rests to our music. This is basically the same lesson as lesson 8 but it includes the quarter rests. The addition of the rest means there are a lot more options for grouping the notes in sets of 4. Just a reminder that the rest gets one beat just as the quarter note does. Whenever the children are reading and clapping music it is important that the rest be "felt" even though there is no sound. For this lesson you may want to add instruments for variety.
