P2 - B6


  • Coordinate the action of both hands rhythmically on the pulse, developing an inner pulse at different speeds and with different bowings

Provide opportunities for learners to play/tap/clap/move to a regular pulse at different tempi, including dotted rhythms, ritenuto and accelerando. Teach pieces in simple time, using common note values and their rests.

As an extension activity, having internalised the piece, ask learners to play it using simple sub-divisions, e.g. quavers.

Establishing and maintaining an inner pulse is essential for good coordination.
