After you get the latest version of Flash, you'll be able to play around with Rhythm!
If you listen for it, you can find rhythm just about anywhere: in a basketball being dribbled, raindrops falling, or hands clapping.
Rhythm is what makes music move and flow.
Rhythm is made up of sounds and silences. These sounds and silences are put together to form patterns of sound, which are repeated to create rhythm. A rhythm has a steady beat, but it may also have many different kinds of beats. Some beats may be stronger or longer or shorter or softer than others. In a single piece of music, a composer can use many different rhythms.
In this activity, you'll get to hear many different rhythms.
