I have a few students who are learning eighth notes for the first time. I wanted to give them a series of eighth note worksheets to tap and count at home, but realized that there was only 1 posted on the website.
I have added 5 new eighth note worksheets to the Rhythm Worksheets section of the website (under Wendy’s Piano Studio tab/Teaching Resources). Each worksheet gets progressively more difficult. I encourage my students to clap or tap and count out loud at home. I often ask them to also find “intersting sounds” on the piano (triads are illegal!) and play their rhythm with those sounds. We sometimes use animal noises as well. Then, when they come back to their lessons, they play their rhythms on a rhythm instrument that they have picked from my selection.
