Rhythm syllable system is the beat function system of Edwin E. Gordon

  • Basics: du, du-de-, du-ta-de-ta, du for duple meter; du, du-da-di-, du-ta-da-ta-di-ta, du for triple meter (and more!).

  • Merits

    • Based on audiation--how rhythms sound--rather than notation.​

    • Performable.

    • Accounts for enrhythmic notation; multiple ways to notate a given rhythm pattern.

    • Accommodates assymetric meters coherently.
