What are pulse and rhythm?
Begin with pulse and rhythm
If you are starting to explore music it's helpful to know about pulse and rhythm. They're the foundations to every song.
Pulse is a steady beat like a ticking clock or your heartbeat.
It can be measured in time by counting the number of beats per minute (BPM).
Rhythm is the pattern of long and short sounds as you move through the song.
