Preliminary Grade Keeping Time
This section of the Aural Assessment is all about being able to keep the beat. This isn't about strumming a rhythm. For this a melody will be played to you in 4/4 time and you will simply be asked to clap the beat, emphasising the first beat of the bar.
In all these examples you will hear the melody three times. Listen to it the first time, try and clap the beat the second time and the third time will include a clap in the track so you can see if you were correct.
Here goes, good luck.

Keeping time, really just being able to clap a beat. Fairly straightforward but obviously the more complex the melody the harder it becomes. COMING SOON Pitch and Harmony Tests.
