Exercise E810 features a tie across the measure line in 4/4 time. There are four beats in each measure and the quarter note is equal to one beat. The exercise is two measures long, and it is played four times in the video. You can buy Time Lines Book 1 and see all of the rhythm exercises, patterns, and melodies, as well as the Time Games, in a clearly organized format.
In the video, you will hear a voice count one measure in tempo (“1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and”). Enter in the next measure. During the third time through the exercise, the example stops playing, but you should continue to play so you can hear yourself with the metronome. A magenta line moves across the screen to show where each beat begins, and the Time Lines Color Blocks show the relative length of all the notes and rests.
This exercise is played at 66 BPM (beats per minute). If you would like to practice this exercise at a slower or faster tempo, visit the metronome section of Music All the Time.
