5 Summary of Week 1

This week you have learned about rhythm – the element of music that helps us tap our feet, nod our heads or even to get up and dance. You have learned some key terms such as pulse, tempo and metre. In the next week, you will turn to melody. If rhythm encourages you to dance, a melody is what you sing.
