Rhythm and Dictation comes from Mr. W's classroom to yours and only requires up to 5 minutes each day for full benefit! One workbook suits all instrumental & vocal students. They will learn to count, understand rhythm patterns, and become confident rhythm readers. These rhythm skills translate to improved playing and sight reading ability.
Introduce Rhythm and Dictation into the classroom when students understand quarter notes and rests, and can count and sustain pulse in 4/4 time. This workbook progresses from simple quarter notes in 4/4 time to mixed meter, compound meter, 16th notes, triplets, and syncopation.
Rhythm and Dictation is also set up for home use with free online dictation sound files that can be accessed through the Neil A. Kjos Music Company website.
Rhythm and Dictation features 48 weeks of writing and dictation exercises. Each week includes two counting and rhythm writing exercises, followed by three dictation exercises. Melodic dictation lines are provided in the Teacher's Edition and students write the rhythmic equivalent in their workbook.
Rhythm and Dictation brings results! It gets the job done and because it only requires up to 5 minutes each day, the majority of your class time can still focus on new material, performance literature, and more.
