Compose a Rhythm in Four Measures
For this exercise you will create a rhythm by combining the rhythms in the five cells above in an original way.
- Requirements for this exercise:
- A title centered at the top of the score, the text of the title is up to you.
- Your full name should be placed in the composer field, below and to the right of the title.
- Your composition must be exactly four measures long in 4/4 or 3/4 meter. Be sure there are no empty measures after measure four.
- You must use each of the cells above at least once in your composition. Keep in mind that each cell is a complete unit and cannot be broken up or reordered.
- You may ONLY use the cells above to create your rhythm ~ No other rhythms will be allowed.
- You can use different pitches if you want to, but you can also just create the whole example on a single note ~ The note B tends to work well in treble clef.
- If you are using MuseScore for your notation assignments, you might download this template in 4/4 to get you started.
- Always try to submit assignments early so that the instructor might be able to give you some feedback. That way, if there are any problems you can resubmit a corrected version.
- When using a notation program for one of these assignments, you will need to export your score as a PDF. Most notation programs will have an "Export as PDF", or "Print as PDF" option. If it doesn't, consider changing programs. Once you have your score saved as a PDF, upload it to the assignment in your course. Here are instructions for exporting a PDF in MuseScore.
