Faber Primer Rhythm and Finger Exercises

I have decided to make some rhythm and finger exercises based on the Faber Primer book.  I got the idea of making them label from Susan Paradis.

I am assigning the student these exercises to have some extra practice with counting and playing rhythms and coordinating fingers.  I have placed page numbers on some exercises because the correlate with that page.

Though some are the exact pattern found in the song, some are combinations of patterns.  I am assigning these exercise one to two weeks before the student gets to that page, so they have done the preliminary work on the song already.

There are many possibilities with the rhythms, playing hands separately, hand together, clapping, stomping, patting, snapping, playing with instruments, counting out loud, playing on the keyboard, etc. .

I use Avery labels 48860 with a measurement of 1" by 2 5/8'

Faber Primer Level Rhythm and Finger Exercises

If you have trouble printing them, email me and I will email you a pdf file


  1. Just found your site (thanks to Natalie at Music Matters) your Faber rhythms (Primer and Level 1), great idea for pre-teaching (I always push rhythms first and this will be a great tool). You said to email you if we had trouble printing them and you'd send the pdf but I don't see your email anywhere on your blog - I'm sure it's there and I'm just not finding it!

  2. Glad you like the rhythm labels. Email me at
