Dear Piano-Playing Friend:

     Would you like to play the kind of piano that makes people being to tap their toes, or snap their fingers? Let me tell you a TRUE story about how I learned rhythm:

     When I was in my late teens, I was playing for a church youth group "singspiration". I loved chords, and I used to do pretty well playing most songs. But when it came to the "spirited" songs -- the ones with lots of rhythm and life, I was lost. I overheard one of our youth leaders say "Let's get someone on the piano with some rhythm!" Ouch! That really hurt. I knew it was true, but it's not fun to hear if from someone else, especially someone you respect.

      Right then and there I made a decision: no matter how long it took, I was going to MASTER RHYTHM. I was going to learn every possible beat combination, and how to use those beats in each song, and what to do in the right hand to compliment what the left hand was doing. My search took me to private teachers, music schools, combos, books of all sorts, libraries, and listening to THOUSANDS of records, tapes, and live performances. I copied down various rhythm patterns on 3" by 5" cards, and at night I would analyze them playing them over and over again on the piano. It was HARD WORK for me. It didn't come easy, like chords had for me. Chords were a snap, but not rhythm. It was difficult to read, and hard to play. I found myself rushing, dragging, stumbling, and generally fouling up. But as time went by, I got a little better. I continued to make notes of rhythm patterns, and started a collection of books and materials on rhythm.

     By the time I got my Master's Degree from Southern Oregon University, I was starting to get the hang of it. I was beginning to understand what rhythm was, and what made it tick. I began to categorize rhythm patterns into different groups, such as rhythm & blues, jazz, rock, dance patterns, marches, waltzes, fox trots, swing, boleros, discos, ballads, gospel, bossa-novas, beguines, rumbas, cha chas, sambas, and so on.

     But it's one thing to know a rhythm, and another thing to EXECUTE it on the piano.

     So I developed a system that is VISUAL -- it allows you to SEE a rhythm while you HEAR it played. You count it out with me on the CD's and on the DVD's, and then you and I play it over and over and over again, until you get it IN YOUR BONES -- down deep, where it becomes a vital part of you.

     Then it will become NATURAL, and people will sense the EASE with which you play all those seemingly complex rhythms.

     If you have problems with your rhythm -- whether it is counting, or dragging, or rushing, or just not knowing what to do when....this great course is for you!
