time signature tells you that the size for
each measure will be four quarter notes
long. The tempo tells you how fast to play
each quarter note. Listen to the "click"
sounds that are being played by your computer
and the QuickTime metronome file.
Each click represents one quarter note.
Tap your hand on your thigh and match each
click heard with one tap of your hand. You
should now be tapping along with the metronome
and at the same speed. Do this for about
3 minutes. As you do this, look at each
quarter note (reading from left to right)
on the staff. Let your eyes move from one
quarter note to the next as you hear each
click and perform one tap with your hand.
When your eyes run out of quarter notes,
go back to the beginning of the staff and
begin again. Continue to repeat this exercise
over and over for at least 3 minutes. When
you are done, go to the next page.
