Compose a Walking and Jogging Tune

In a previous challenge you composed a Walking Tune on your instrument. Now we will try composing a tune with a more complicated rhythm – using walking and jogging notes.

Start with a simple tune with just walking notes and ending on one long note. Here is mine. It ends on a stride note (two counts):


Now experiment with changing some of the walking notes into two jogging notes, either the same or different. This is what I came up with.


Try making different tunes and putting them together to make a long one. If you are playing the piano you could swap between the hands. If you are playing the violin or cello you could swap between strings.
