Title: The exploration of rhythm systems used in the teaching of instrumental music: ensembles in Singapore
Synopsis:

The purpose of this study was to explore the use of rhythm systems used by Singapore
instrumental music instructors. A survey was conducted with music instructors teaching the concert/symphonic bands, brass bands and Chinese orchestras in Singapore public schools. The aim of the survey was to gather information related to rhythm systems used by the music instructors to teach rhythm. Follow-up interviews were conducted with some music instructors for additional inputs and further discussion. The information collected from the surveys and interviews was used to determine why certain rhythm systems were commonly used and how do rhythm systems support the teaching of rhythm fundamentals to the ensemble students. In addition, the information collected from the interviews was used to justify the benefits of learning the rhythm systems in terms of rhythm recognition and sight-reading ability. The findings from the research proved that the use of rhythm systems is essential in the teaching of rhythm fundamentals to the instrumental music ensemble students in Singapore. The number system (1-e-and- a) is the most common and effective rhythm system used by the music instructors.
