This is the first of a series of metronome videos. It is my firm belief that working on your rhythmic skills (and counting, in particular) is the quickest way for most of my students to improve their musicianship.
The first video of this series takes you through playing on the beat (the downbeat) and off the beat (the upbeat).
Conventions that will be used in this series:
- All counting will include numbers so that you will know (confidently) where you are in every measure.
- The number “1” is always at the beginning of a measure.
- The numbers always line up with where you want to tap your foot.
