Teaching Movable "Du": Guidelines for Developing Enrhythmic Reading Skills
Dalby, Bruce
Music Educators Journal, v101 n3 p91-99 Mar 2015
Reading music notation with fluency is a complex skill requiring well-founded instruction by the music teacher and diligent practice on the part of the learner. The task is complicated by the fact that there are multiple ways to notate a given rhythm. Beginning music students typically have their first encounter with enrhythmic notation when they learn to play in "cut time," or "alla breve," but there are many other types of enrhythmic notation that must be mastered. This article discusses the challenges involved in teaching enrhythmic skills and suggests guidelines for making instruction more effective.
