In music, time signatures determine how many beats are within a bar and they are represented by a fraction usually at the beginning of a musical piece. While there are many different time signatures, this handout focuses on the 4/4 signature. With this handout, you can learn how to maintain a consistent tempo with a 4/4 signature! Clap your hands to the corresponding notes and listen to how they differ whilst staying on beat. Even test your friends to see if they can clap different notes while on the beat!
