Music Rhythm Games


Try these sequenced music rhythm games and quizzes to help learn music in 4/4 time.

These games are great for beginners learning piano or learning music.

At the top of the page you'll find the musical symbols we're using for the games below. 

We need to have a basis for how many beats a note or rest gets and that is the 4/4 time signature. (Every bar will need to add up to 4).

Notes & Rests We're Using In The Games

Here the notes and rests we will use in the games and quizzes and their counts.

Noisy notes are on the left and quiet rests are on the left in this chart below. Learn these and I will ask some questions in a quiz below to see if you get it.
