Take a look inside!
In this preview:
- Vocabulary – Rhythm is a language, with “words” and phrases. Boost reading skills with pattern recognition and focused breakdowns.
- Listening – Developing the ear is just as important as technique and reading. Loop-based jam activities emphasize listening while you play, promoting pulse and subdivision awareness.
- Technique – Embedded warmups and helpful hints maintain a great pace with lesson content.
- Critical Thinking – Analysis and anticipation are part of the process from the very first lesson. Hands-on writing and labeling steps make reflective practice a habit.
