Rhythmic Dictations: Dictation # 1-5

 


 

Part of ear training is to recognize rhythms.  The goal in this section is to listen to the exercise and then try to write down in notation what you have just heard.

This is not easy, but just give it a try.  Do not try to write it down while listening to it.  Instead listen to it 3-4 times and see if you can remember the rhthm and then write it down.
