Dictation

In this activity you must listen to a rhythm and then select rhythmic symbols to create the correct musical notation. You will use the Rhythm Tool to do this.

When you click on the rhythmic values near the bottom of the screen, the symbols are added to the rhythm notation above. To add a tie to a note, click the Tie button first and then the note value that follows.

Use the Play button to listen to the rhythm. Depending on the step, there is a limit to the number of replays allowed. The play button eventually becomes inactive. Then you must make your best guess.
