In this session - we take a look at all aspects of the march idiom. From 3/4's, 4/4's, 2/4's and 6/8 marches - we cover it all. There are also different levels of rhythmical complexity that help categorize these marches. Use this as a jumping point to choosing your next march.
In this session we zoom in and break apart compound time marches. We examine each of the 4 main rhythms used to make up all such marches and then attempt to ground our syllable based technique on that rhythmic framework. A must for all who seek to play well in this idiom.
In this class we wrap up the second part of Steamboat. Then we dive head first into the technically challenging Bonnie Dundee. This tune is a real challenge but we take it slow and will spend several classes on it!
