Greetings: I'm Michael Welch, the author of MrMikesMusicMats. My Music & Math book teaches early learners (age 4 & Up) the rhythmic value of music notes. This book only uses addition. In my classes I begin by teaching the students these values. Whole Note and Whole Rest = 4 Beats Dotted Half Note = 3 Beats Half Note and Half Rest = 2 Beats Quarter Note and Quarter Rest = 1 Beat 2 Eight Notes = 1 Beat I use my Notation Flashcards on a regular basis. After they have a basic understanding of these signs I play Music & Math games with them. Example: (1) With 2 hands, I'll hold up 2 fingers on the left hand. This is a Half Note. It gets 2 beats. (2) On the right hand, I'll hold up 1 finger. This is a quarter note. It gets 1 beat. (3) The left hand is 2 beats (4) The right hand is 1 beat (5) 2 Beats plus 1 Beat equals how many beats? 3 beats You can be very creative with "YOUR WAY" to teach this concept of Music & Math. Over 50 pages of problems with answer pages. Students love doing these, they have fun more
