Subdivisions are smaller beats within a main beat.
In 4/4 time the main beat is a quarter note ♩
The quarter note subdivisions we'll be using are:
Quarter Notes = 1 per beat
Eighth Notes = 2 per beat
Eighth Note Triplets = 3 per beat
Sixteenth Notes = 4 per beat
Quintuplets = 5 per beat
Sixteenth Note Triplets = 6 per beat
Septuplets = 7 per beat
Thirty-Second Notes = 8 per beat
By combining subdivisions we can strengthen our rhythmic accuracy and timing.
To work on subdivisions further you can use each combination with the Master System.
⚫️ = Quintuplets
⃝ = 8th Note Triplets
