Practice Suggestions for Learning How to Play Tuplet Rhythms
As with many of the rhythm lessons in this website, the key to playing tuplet rhythms accurately is to subdivide the beat properly.
Practice slowly and with a metronome to ensure your accuracy. Many of the rhythms in these lessons are quite challenging. Switching between duple and triple subdivisions of the beat require careful practice and lots of accurate repetition.
When practicing quintuplets, sextuplets, or septuplets, make sure that each subdivision is the exact same length. Use the words chosen in examples 2207 through 2209, or select your own words that match the number of subdivisions per beat.
