Beat and Rhythm Workbook

 Learning beat and rhythm methodically!

Most popular music has a strong rhythmic component – and the modern-styles keyboard player needs well-developed beat and rhythm skills just to stay in the game.

Our usual way of trying to ‘get’ difficult rhythms – namely, just trying again and again – is unscientific, inefficient and frustrating, leaving many people believing that, when it comes to syncopation and advanced rhythms, you’ve either ‘got it’ or you haven’t.

Well, that’s just not true! With the right learning material, anybody can be much better at syncopation than they ever thought possible! What's needed is a head-on, methodical approach with rhythm skills centre-stage.

Here's a video intro to the Musicarta Beat and Rhythm Workbook.

Take a look at those four modules in a bit more detail...

The Snake Dance

First, the Snake Dance, that timeless novelty piano teachers hate - but which everyone else instinctively moves to! It's fun and engaging, and the basis for a whole raft of big-and-bold two-handed rhythms designed to loosen you up and get you started.

Nobody gets left behind in the build-up to the basic syncopated version; after that it's no holds barred!

Crossed hands - left hand off the beat - left hand in 'staggered quavers' - longer rhythmic patterns - ornaments - harmonisation - medleys...

It's a whirlwind tour of keyboard creativity that will leave you asking, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Well, from now on - you will!

All the while, you're 'getting your ear in'. One advantage of "digging one well deep" like this is that you start 'seeing the music in the keyboard' - the secret to playing by ear.

Result? You can go to the piano - and just "sit down and play".















Syncopation and Anticipation Tenths

Popular music is characterised by a high proportion of notes played 'off the beat', known in music as syncopation or anticipation. Ragtime (ragged time) music, the fore-runner of jazz, exploited syncopation as its main selling point – and popular music has absorbed the habit wholesale.

Modern popular-styles musicians need to have these beat and rhythm skills ‘in the bone’. The Syncopation and Anticipation Tenths module in the Beat and Rhythm Workbook methodically to build a melodic style of two-handed syncopation which will be instantly familiar to anybody who knows their music.

Listen to the development of syncopation in this simple run of tenths.

Might not be exactly what you've always dreamed of playing, but

  • The rhythmic skills coached here are timeless and indispensable;
  • The simplicity of the material makes focusing on the rhythmic component easier, and
  • The step-by-step progression leaves no-one behind.
