Mr. Squirrel Gets Ready to Perform a Concert

Mr. Squirrel Goes to a Concert

 

Mr. Squirrel is very excited about performing a concert of clarinet music. The music he will play has many eighth notes, so Mr. Squirrel will be sure to tap his foot to the beat and subdivide the beat to play even and accurate eighth notes.

Rhythm: Your time signature is two-four time, which means that there are two beats in a measure and the quarter note is equal to one beat. Playing along with MetronomeBot's talking metronome in duple meter will help you maintain a steady tempo.
