In this class, Vin works through a "Small Tune," "Kilmartin Castle." "Kilmartin Castle" is a great, small 6/8 that is excellent practice for fundamental rhythm and "swing."

In this week's class we review Brigadier General Ronald Cheape of Tiroran, looking at key examples in the tune where we need to to keep our eyes out for potential pitfalls and cheating our short notes. We discuss a little bit more depth than last week in terms of modulating the length of long notes to accommodate good phrasing and pulsing while still maintaining consistency of short notes for maximum musicality.
In this class, we continue last week's theme looking at The Australian Ladies as a tune example. There are some great points to talk about in this tune, and we look at a bunch of different rhythmic combinations in an effort to master the concept of ALAP/ASAP and incorporate it into our music making.
In this class, we continue to look at Susan MacLeod in what we're now calling "ASAP Notation." Basically, all the steps are now written out for us, so we can more easily see everything that needs to be accomplished technically in our performance.
