Studying Rhythm introduces the basic processes and complexities of musical rhythm. Authors Anne Hall and Timothy Urban help you develop the ability to perform all kinds of rhythmic patterns accurately at sight. This thorough, practical introduction to rhythm offers more than 300 rhythmic studies, each with short preliminary exercises, that are intended to be sung, spoken, and tapped or clapped.

The 4th Edition offers a wealth of new and updated content. Fresh examples from the standard repertory illustrate the main features of each chapter. New material on structured improvisation has been included at the end of each chapter. Additional, single-line studies in the earlier chapters further reinforce basic reading fluency in all common meters and of all common rhythm patterns.
