Description

This course will be the single biggest improvement to the bottom line of your musicianship: how you sound like, and how fun it is to listen to you. (And for other musicians - how fun it is to play with you)

Did you ever feel like your sense of rhythm is not good enough? That your playing feels "sloppy" in terms of time-keeping?

Maybe it was when you tried playing with other people, or when you were about to perform solo on stage and you noticed that you're always dragging or rushing through the chords? 

I think that most musicians do, and not only in the first years of playing. 

This course will be the end to this terrible feeling.

It never ceased to amaze me how despite the fact that rhythm is the foundation of everything in music, we tend to focus and work so much on all the other sexy things, like playing complex solos, jammin' with songs with dozens of chords, playing multiple instruments, and yet we still forget to dedicate even a tiny bit of work to the foundation of everything - our rhythm!

When your rhythm is OFF and you're not groovin' with the song, everybody can sense it, even if not consciously. (non-musician listeners and fellow musicians alike) 

It'll simply not be pleasant either to listen to you, or to make music with you.

The good news are: working on your time keeping skills is the area that will give you the most fruitful "return on investment rate" of your time. 

It's not that hard to work on it, and it does not demand a lot of time when you practice, yet the rewards are the biggest since once you do work on it - everything else that you'll play will just sound WAY BETTER. 

WELCOME to The Ultimate Sense of Rhythm & Time Course

In the course we will use an all-around approach (both intellectual and sensual) to hone your sense of rhythm and give it the love that it never received before.

The result: no matter what you're going to play - it will sound way better.

You'll also leave with the best practice routine to keep maintaining and improving your sense of time, and maybe even when you're playing a new percussion instrument of your choice!

Here are some of the lesson topics that we'll work on, and how you'll achieve that rock-solid sense of time you always wanted:

  • Introduction to How Rhythm Works and to The Metronome - Your Best Practice Buddy

  • The #1 Most Powerful Exercise to Immensely Strengthen Your Sense of Rhythm

Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon and I am 28 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

My guitar blog, GuitarHippies-com, (founded 2014) where I share my tips for playing music, has a monthly readership of over 50K from over a 100 different countries and is one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs*. I am also the founder of the Harmonica Jamz-com courses and blog that has been online since 2016 and has thousands of happy students here on Udemy.

--------

Cheers, and I'm looking forward to seeing you inside, 

-Alon
