Keeping Time on the “&” – Part 2

Building on the skills we developed in Part 1, the independence will stay the same for Part 2—keep time with one hand on the “&” of the beat while the other plays a chart—but we will now be switching the roles of the hands every THREE beats within the 4/4 chart!

Libor’s Groove Ideas #1 & 2

I will be sharing these Drum Grooves with you as they surface :-)

Developing Strong Inner Clock – Part 2

In this lesson to further strengthen our inner clock, we will be developing the ability to count an independent time signature while playing a written piece. The chart is the same from Part 1 and can be downloaded below. The chart is written in 4/4, but we will count out loud in anything but!

This will be very challenging at first, because seeing the bar lines as you read will inherently signal the end of a measure and the beginning of the next. With practice, you will begin seeing figures for their note values and how they relate to the MASTER CODE of time, regardless of the given time signature.
