Musical number patterns: musical times

TLF ID L1065

Make some music by building up rhythms from four instruments. Make a counting rule that matches a pattern on a number line. Select the start number and then select a number to count by. For example, describe a sound pattern where a saxophone waits on the first note, and then plays on every eighth note. Add a second number pattern using another musical instrument. Then play all of the sound patterns together to hear your music.
