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.
The note values consist of quarter notes, half notes, and whole rests.

Melody: This piece consists of 4, four-measure phrases. It is written very simply so you can focus on placing your fingers properly on the tone holes of the clarinet. It also uses the slurs that we learned in Lesson 9.
