RHYTHMICAL EXERCISES.

LXXX. Accent in music, implies a peculiar force or expression, given to certain beats or parts of the measure in the different varieties of time. In Common time (two beats,) it occurs on the first beat; in Triple, on the first, principally, and slightly upon the third. In Compound time (two beats,) upon the first. In Compound time Triple, it is the same as in Triple time.

LXXXI. To read efficiently, or Sing at Sight; implies the ability to recognize intuitively the correct pitch of a sound within a given interval of time indicated by the form of a note; and as Rhythm and Melody are of so varied a character as to render it difficult to acquire a knowledge of them only from the singing of tunes; it is indispensable that they be practiced carefully and thoroughly in the form of exercises. The following accordingly will be found to consist of such.

NOTE. The following exercises with the letter B at the close of them, are to be sung backwards, after being sung forwards; this arrangement will be found to give many of them a very important variety.
