Internalizing Rhythms (for non-drummers)

Chase Kuesel

Do you feel like your lack of rhythmic fluency may be holding you back from performing music you love? Do you feel like melody and harmony have been prioritized in your music education so far, at the expense of developing a more robust set of rhythmic capabilities? If so, this class is for you!

We’ll start off by reviewing the basics – quarter and eighth note phrasing – before quickly launching into more advanced rhythmic concepts, including: 16th note permutations, metric modulations, additive sequences, and odd-time signatures. No practice pad or drum set is necessary, as all exercises will be done by speaking and clapping!  Ages 13+. Must be comfortable with basic music notation (reading and counting quarter notes, eighth notes, and sixteenth notes) to enroll.
