You’ve Got Rhythm
YOU’VE GOT RHYTHM!
An opportunity to clap, play and sing (dancing optional) and gain confidence in reading and performing rhythm
Do you feel stuck, thinking you are “bad at timing”?
Do you feel frustrated every time you play with others and stumble over those black dots on your paper – especially, if the notes have a lot of beams or tails, too?
If so, join us for a 3-week course (3 sessions of 2 hours each) to brush up your knowledge, start trusting the beat and finding your groove.
Do you have a heart that beats? – Yes? Then you’ve got rhythm!
