One of the beginning rhythm concepts that piano students can get tripped up by is feeling quavers (eighth notes). They can often either be too fast or uneven.
This little exercise is something I do as a warm up to help students feel how the beat subdivisions and prevent quaver fever from ever taking hold.
You can find this and many other rhythm drills in my book, Rhythm in 5. Click here to see it on Amazon.
What are quick clips?
Colourful Keys Quick Clips are all about giving you a taste of what my lessons are actually like – in action.
I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.
Let me know what you think!
I hope you had fun watching this Colourful Keys Quick Clip.
