challenging but essential
I was surprised how much clapping I had to work at to get the rhythms correct. Great course.
Challenging
Syncopation kicked my A... Stick with it and finally got it. Will need to revisit this lesson often. It really helped to get my hands starting to work independently and together at the same time.
Had a lot of Fun
It's a great course for people with classical piano training to fill up some gaps. Some of the techniques were easier and others very challenging. I'm delighted with the results. I'm jumping onto the next one!
Very challenging and fun
Really enjoyed learning the rhythm patterns. Found the counting to be very helpful!
Tough but load of fun
Loved to spend more time just focused on the rhythms. Really helped breaking up into separate hands. Rhythms 5 and 6 were a challenge particularly switching up the variations - forced me to take the time and practice practice practice. Having the nice chord patterns made it very enjoyable and satisfying once mastered.
