I Got Circles of Rhythm

by Augsburg Fortress

From Ted-Ed and contributor and educator John Varney:

"In standard notation, rhythm is indicated on a musical bar line. But there are other ways to visualize rhythm that can be more intuitive. John Varney describes the ‘wheel method’ of tracing rhythm and uses it to take us on a musical journey around the world."

The following are just a few of the titles available for instant download in the Prelude library that explore various aspects of global styles and rhythms:

"ChildrenSing Around the World"


"God Who Watches Over Me"

God Who Watches Over Me

"Here is Love"

Here Is Love

And for a bit more rhythmic inspiration...
