Writing answering rhythms

Click the arrow to hear the rhythm and practice your answering ideas.

If you want to type your answer in and hear it, click on the link below the example. You’ll need to be in “edit mode” and input your answer on the drum grid (not the music staff!. I recommend right clicking and opening in another tab.

In the practice mode (hitting play in the examples) how many answering rhythms can you come up with? Have you got a favourite? Aim to stay in time with the metronome while you clap and make bar 4 sound like an ending. Tip: Clapping with one hand on the other (rather than moving both hands) is easier to control.

If the play button doesn’t load on this page try refreshing the page.
