Music Method for Rhythm and Reading
Time Lines Book 1 for Piano
is a fun music method that will help you improve your rhythm, your sight-reading, and your fundamental skills. It is part of Kyle Coughlin’s Time Focus Music Method which guides students to focus on one element of music at a time. Book 1 of Time Lines
consists of eight lessons that teach you how to play quarter notes and rests, half notes and rests, dotted half notes, whole notes and rests, eighth notes, and dotted quarter notes. The book also features chapters on pickup notes and ties across the measure line.Time Lines Book 1
includes hundreds of practice examples, with rhythm exercises, rhythm patterns, melodies, and Time Games. The melodies are written on one staff line and alternate between treble and bass clef, so students can practice with both the right and left hand. The Time Games are fun pieces for both hands. They are technically simple but rhythmically challenging.
