The Basic Building Blocks of Rhythm
Rhythm forms the basis of music theory. It is what all other musical elements are based upon. You can only survive so long in your musical journey without the essential building block of rhythm.
Ask professional musicians: what one element of music do you find to be most important? The answer will often be rhythm. As it is the one thing that is least forgiven by the listener.
Our learning approach assumes a level of maturity in the student. Often it is related to the age of about 8 years old. However, with proper guidance younger ages can use the materials.
We don’t take a single element to explore, but instead take a bigger picture and zero in on the elements that make it work.
When we teach notes names or values we do it all at once, because it is very important that you know how all of them are related right at the start. This allows you jump start and accelerate your learning process. What’s really neat is that if you get hung up you can go back and see exactly what that single thing is and how it relates to other items in context.
