How can a music teacher help his pupils who have no rhythm feeling at all, who are not able to count or speak in a rhythmical way? How can we improve rhythm reading? Is there a helping method for people having problems with rhythmic notation and rhythm feeling?
Count. Count out loud. Write down the words used for counting on the score lined up with the notes and rests in question. Practice counting out loud every practice. Practice counting so much that the count becomes part of the music.
Obviously that's less helpful for any musician playing a breath operated instrument. For them, I suppose trying to count silently in one's mind while perhaps tapping the foot might be the best one can do.
