Best Ways to Practice Rhythm/Timing?
Topic Started: 19 Apr 2017, 01:40 AM (2,232 Views)

Listen to music you like. Find the beat/rhythm. Tap your foot to it - or perhaps try to dance to the beat. Don't worry about dancing well, just trying to stay on beat. You could also try going to a drum circle, where you can literally feel the beat. You could also try picking up a percussion instrument, which will get you thinking about things in that context. I started playing the cas cas/asalato/kashaka a while ago and it got me really thinking about beats and such. It got me listening to a lot more music and listening differently.

If you want to learn difficult rhythms, I can make suggestions too - but for simply keeping time - I think the above will help.
