  3. 3. What is your definition of rhythm?
  4. 4. What is it?? • A beat is the basic time unit within much Western music; for example, each tick sounded by a metronome would correspond to a beat. More technically, "the beat is the pulse of the mensural level"[1], also known as the beat level[2], the metric level at which pulses are heard as the basic unit–"the denominator of the meter signature," admitting compound meters. Depending on the context, beat may denote: the onset of the corresponding time unit, a point in time, the very moment when the metronome ticks; the complete time interval between two consecutive taps, so to say; in popular music, the whole sequence of individual beats (in the sense of meter, rhythm, groove, or riddim); in hip hop music, the entire instrumental, non- vocal portion of the song.
