Learn about Musical Beats

Hello mums and dads! This week we looked at our beat sheet! We met all the different musical notes we look at on the Fun-Keys course. Slow Mr Semibreve - he's the biggest of all the notes lasting FOUR counts! Clap πŸ‘ 1 and hold for 2,3,4! Hungry miss Minim - she's SO hungry! She lasts TWO counts. ClapπŸ‘ 1 hold 2, clap πŸ‘ 3 hold 4! Happy miss Crotchet - she's bright and chirpy! She lasts ONE count. ClapπŸ‘ 1, clapπŸ‘ 2, clapπŸ‘ 3, clapπŸ‘ 4. Cheeky monkey Quaver - he's the quickest of the notes lasting HALF a beat. Say the words "1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &" Now have a go at clapping as you say each word! There will be 8 claps! 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘


πŸ” What is the note worth 4 counts?


πŸ” What do we do when there's a little black spot under a number? Now, have a look at our weekly video to see the crazy characters we use to describe the beats! Wishing you all a fun and happy week in the sunshine β˜€β˜€β˜€ Until next week! 🎹 πŸ‘ πŸŽ‰ ❀ 😁 πŸ“ 🌸 🌺
