Unit C2 – Rhythm

To successfully finish this unit, students should add the following concepts and note lengths to their repertoire:

  • single quavers
  • quaver rests
  • dotted crotchets (dotted crotchet – quaver rhythms)
  • fermatas

These can be in metres relevant to this stage or any of the preceding stages.

Students should also be able to explain what a dot does to the length of a note.
