In this video lesson, “5 Tips To Improve Rhythm”, I share some practice ideas that you can use to level up your rhythm skills.
Apply these practice ideas to any musical devices that you want to master. Whether it is a particular scale, a set of chords, an arpeggio run, or anything else, applying these practice ideas can help you become more familiar with different aspects of rhythm in the context of the specific thing you are trying to master.
My goal in my own practice is to always be practicing rhythm, no matter what else I’m also practicing. This is because rhythm is the source of music; melody and harmony which happen in time, and rhythm is their placement in time. To improve your rhythm, or your time, will make your playing sound more confident, controlled and fluent.
