Time Lines Rhythm Exercises

This page features links to all of the units with audio and video pages for the Time Lines Rhythm Exercises that are available online. Each of these exercises is one measure long and features a rhythm for you to clap and count and practice on your instrument. If you need an explanation of the material for a specific unit, visit the Time Lines Table of Contents. Go to the Time Lines Color Blocks page for an explanation of how they can help you to understand the lengths of notes and rests. I will continue to add videos as quickly as I can. If you would like to receive information on updates to the website (as well as a link to free materials), sign up for the Music All the Time newsletter.
To see all of the written music for the Rhythm Exercises and much more, purchase the Time Lines book for your instrument.
