Rhythm is the backbone of music the world over, but unless you are studying percussion, it can be one of the most neglected areas of music education.
That's why Muse-Eek has created the Rhythm Ear Training Series. And like many of our educational products, this series is a lifelong companion, one that will keep you learning and growing the more you use it.
Oddly enough, people are frequently unaware that they have rhythm problems. Unless another musician or a teacher tells them, it's unlikely they will ever know. So ask yourself these questions:
- Does my rhythm get unreliable when playing solos, chords or trying to lock into a groove with other musicians?
- Do I have a tendency to speed up or slow down when I play or read music?
- Do I lack rhythmic diversity when I'm soloing or writing music?
- When I'm transcribing music do I find it hard to figure out rhythms?
- If someone shows me a rhythm do I have a hard time duplicating it?
- When composing, is it hard for me to translate the rhythms I hear in my head into rhythmic notation?
- Do I have a hard time getting a musical flow happening when I'm playing or improvising?
- Am I in the dark about what rhythm level is being played when I'm listening to or playing music?
- When I have to read music are many of the mistakes I make related to rhythm?
- Do other musicians get chosen instead of me, to play the dance gigs?
Any and all of these problems can be symptoms of poor rhythmic skills. These can cause you not to perform well, get lost when playing music and not be connected in a meaningful way to the music you are listening to or playing.
By working with the Rhythm Ear Training Series you will develop the following strengths:
- The ability to recognize rhythms when you hear them or see them written on a page.
- A more consistent groove as you play music.
- An understanding of how music is put together rhythmically.
- Enhanced speed and accuracy in your playing.
- A much more robust vocabulary of rhythms that you naturally play when you are performing music.
- More meaningful interactions with other musicians.
- Ability to learn new music faster.
- Rhythmic accuracy that will have people connecting with you physically when you play; in other words, they'll be dancing!
