Musical number patterns: musical counter

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Make some music by building up rhythms from four instruments. Follow a counting rule that gives a starting point on a number line and the number of beats to skip. Add a whole number several times on the number line to make a pattern. For example, set up a sound pattern where a drum waits on the first note, and then plays on every fourth note. Add a second or third number pattern using other musical instruments. Then play all of the sound patterns together to hear your music. This learning object is one in a series of five objects.
1. Students apply counting rules to generate number patterns.
2. Students represent number patterns on number lines.
3. Students associate sound patterns with number patterns.
