    I don't blame you. Give your band teacher my disregards. I don't know of an official, idiomatic way of counting 32nd notes, but fear not. Try thinking in cut time, so that eighth notes become the beat, and then just use the 1-e-and-a method, like 16th notes. This is called subdividing.

      You could also add an "ah" after each piece -- might sound weird, but... One-ah-E-ah-and-ah-a-ah... I love the a-ah at the end...

          LE TA LAY TA? Did you mean 16ths or 32?

        i count them like 16th notes. say there are 8 32nd notes on one beat. i think one-e-and-ah-two-e-and-ah, and then go to the next beat. there may be a more official syllable for it, bit this works for me. check out the robert starer rhythmic training book. most likely, he explains a process in it.

            So, why did people go back to spelling "Rhythmical" incorrectly in the subject line?
