Many aspects of the language of music are related to math and other forms of higher thinking. Music is created in different forms. Today we are working with beat and divided beat, which are used to create many rhythm patterns in music.

The most fundamental property of music is beat, the underlying repeating pulse. Playing an instrument to a steady beat helps develop a sense of time and the ability to organize and coordinate movements within time. Learning to hear, feel and move with the divided beat is the next step in understanding the way music and movement are organized in time.
