This unit introduces compound meter. Listen to each exercise while counting or tapping the beat. Do you feel the triple division of the beat? Within each beat, are there three equal values or long-short? Are notes within the beat themselves divided? Review the common patterns found in compound meter.
The 6/8 meter can use two long beats, dotted quarter notes, or three shorter beats, just quarter notes. The audio will use one of those two of segmented into groups of two or three beats per measure.
