So as to validate a series of rhythm tests, we have apllied it to three samples which show different types and levels of experience in relation to it. Group 1, no or little experience. Group 2, music teachers. Group 3, rhythmical gymnasts. As the most relevant conclusions of the study, we state that, in the first place, the “tempo” affects the temporal adjustment in all the groups. In the second place, we can say that significant differences exist between Group 2 and the rest of the groups in some fast tests (ternary and quaternary structures), in some slow tests (ternary and quaternary structures) and in very slow tests (all structures). In the third place, we emphasise that the test of simple structures show better results than those of ternary structures and these, better results than those of quaternar structures.
