RHYTHM WORKSHOP   *   low tech    *    high impact   *

Rhythm Workshop is a set of 24 rhythm duets, each with a comprehensive written preparation page.   RHYTHM WORKSHOP has a 35+ year run as the most comprehensive way to teach students of any age to thoroughly understand rhythm notation concepts and rhythm performance skills.

     Are you spending much of your rehearsal time fixing rhythm problems? If so, you are "remediating". Don't just "teach the rhythms". Teach comprehensive musicianship. By developing the knowledge that your students have, you can drastically reduce rehearsal needed time to demonstrate rhythm patters and to fix rhythm errors. 

     If you are spending 50%+  of your rehearsal time on rhythm, that comes to about 80 hours per year! Invest 5-10 hours in comprehensive training early in the year and you will add 70+ rehearsal hours per year!

Ensembles that build RHYTHM WORKSHOP into the curriculum (or extra curricular activities) generally require less than 10% of rehearsal time to address rhythm issues.

    RHYTHM WORKSHOP is appropriate for any music organization that has music reading as part of routine activities. Bands, orchestras, choirs, guitar ensembles and other groups that incorporate the reading of standard rhythm notation as part of the ensemble experience. 

    RHYTHM WORKSHOP is appropriate for systematic mastery of rhythm reading and performance for private studio teaching, too.

    RHYTHM WORKSHOP includes 24 rhythm duets, each with a written preparation page. The series is divided into 4 levels - "values of one beat and longer", "dividing the beat into two parts", "dividing the beat into three parts". "dividing the beat into four parts". Levels 1, 2, and 4 include time signatures with 2, 4, and 8 on the bottom -- 2, 3, and 4 on top. Level 3 teaches concepts for 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8, with the dotted quarter receiving one beat throughout. 

    Students must be old enough to read and understand fractions of 1/2, 1/3, 1/4. Students as young as early grade school have been successful with the entire series. The text and exercises are appropriate for young students through adult students.

    Upon successful completion, students have the knowledge necessary to rapidly interpret rhythm notation for most of the music they will ever encounter. Each student demonstrates mastery of the knowledge and the skills needed for successful rhythm reading. Teachers can easily identify and correct concepts and skills that are causing roadblocks toward mastery. 

    RHYTHM WORKSHOP duet preparation pages provide a systematic approach to solve rhythm challenges. When your entire ensemble has had the training, you have a way to address and solve challenges that you know every student in the ensemble understands. The act of putting pencil to paper for written answers and drawing notes & rests profoundly improves the learning process. Students retain the information much better than they would just clicking a mouse.

 

Imagine adding 70 hours per year of effective rehearsal time to work on other important issues. 

Imagine having students who practice more effectively because they understand fundamental rhythm reading and performance concepts. 

Imagine having students who practice more because they understand what they are doing and get better return on time invested in practice !
