Bucket School

Copy Cat Level 3

This lesson builds on CC#2 by adding “up beats” that don’t always have the down beats before them.

In this video, upbeats are the opposite from the pulse, which are the down beat (where you’d tap your foot to the music).

And just like the previous video…┬áPlay along with me and see if you can play these rhythms.

1st time slow
2nd time fast

Drum on!

(Teachers: If you’re not going use the video as a play along, I’ve attached the music for you to lead “Copy Cat Level 3” to your class. 1st PDF is standard notation, 2nd PDF is for non-music readers.)
