Rhythmic reading and mastery is not a chore, it is a skill learned by knowledge and regular practice of the most important learning protocols. We train our EYES to:
1. Look ahead
2. Look for / identify patterns (not just notes)
3. See an entire measure, instead of individual notes
4. Hear in your head what it sounds like before verbalizing
We know that practice does not make perfect, it makes permanent, so our goal is to learn correctly the first time….learning is much easier than re-learning.
Take your time at first to get the feel of setting and keeping time. That is the first job of every musician. Teach your eyes to look further ahead and adopt numbers, 2, 3, & 4 protocols above.
