Class Rhythm Exercise:

Divide up into groups of four. Each group needs to come up with a two minute musical work to perform in class. You may use standard music notation or a hybrid graphic notation and music notation style. You will have 20-30 minutes to write and practice your piece before you perform it in class. You can use any instrument, sound, or voice at your disposal. Perform the piece in front of the class. Turn in the music at the end of your performance with each group member's name on the paper to receive credit (worth 30 points).
