Workbook Level 2 Syncopation Reflectionsframed

Using The Rhythm Compass™, created by Curtis Madigan, you can start to practice new concepts. These concepts help give you an incredible power and precision in your rhythm and quickly increase your musical feel. Shown on the left are rhythmic reflections using complimentary syncopation shapes.

Understanding rhythm as being cyclical and symmetrical, will greatly help you to more rapidly achieve a rhythmic mastery in your playing.

 

Workbook Level 2 Double:Half Timeframed

Double time and half time are shown in the book both graphically and as exponents. This allows the musician to better understanding the power of 2 in rhythms. The doubling and halving nature that occurs from continuously multiplying or dividing by 2 is an important concept to master.

Rhythms that are exponents of 2 all have a similar sound to them. The information in this book helps you to be able to “shift” between these related rhythms with greater ease.

Workbook Level 2 Polyrhythm Factors

You can combine various subdivision shapes to create simple polyrhythms. Using your understanding of factors is the easiest way to know which shapes will sound harmonious together

This book is the second in a method that works sequentially from absolute beginner through advanced levels of mastery.

Designed for our Rhythm & Percussion enrichment classes, this is the perfect workbook for any instrument and approach you’re taking in your musical path.
