Lesson 3.8 - Simple phrase structure.

In this grade you will be required to mark where phrases begin and end. There are a few simple clues to help you identify where they start and finish.

Look at this example



  • Phrases tend to be the same length (or they probably will be at this simple level) here each phrase is exactly 4 bars.
  • Phrases tend to start on the same beat of the bar - i.e. if the 1st phrase starts on an upbeat then so will the 2nd. In this example both phrases start on an upbeat.
  • Phrases tend to end on a longer note. Notice here the dotted minim at the end of each phrase.
  • Phrases tend to have similar rhythmic patterns to each other. Here both phrases have exactly the same rhythm.
