Examples in 3/4 Time

Lesson 5 - Examples in 3/4 Time

When sight reading, you need to feel the time signature so you can play musically. For some reason, many students ignore the time signature and end up with a piece that sounds like a list of notes rather than music! This happens most frequently with examples with three crotchet beats in each bar, because students forget to feel “1 2 3, 1 2 3” while they play. This time signature has a strong first beat, then two weaker beats, so count the “1” with a strong feeling.
