Time Lines Rhythm Patterns

This page features links to all of the units with audio examples for the Time Lines Rhythm Patterns that are available online. Each of these patterns is longer than the Rhythm Exercises 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, you can select any of the Intro titles below, or 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 audio examples 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 Patterns, purchase the Time Lines book for your instrument.
