Practising coordination can be difficult. Many students and their teachers write out specific patterns so that they can clearly see where each voice is placed, and how the pattern as a whole aligns. These books present hundreds of patterns covering practical, functional, and far-reaching combinations in a way that is clear, systematic, and instantly accessible.
Funk and Rock
This collection of material provides the student with a clearly laid out and structured reference for hundreds of timekeeping patterns in the funk, rock, and fusion styles. Each pattern is written out, with each permutation and combination clearly presented in well-defined sets.
This reference guide allows the student to see exactly where each voice is placed within the pattern so that they can be practised without the need for visualisation or abstraction. Hundreds of patterns and combinations are instantly accessible for near infinite possibilities.
This collection is further designed for teachers to use alongside their existing teaching material. Coordination sets featuring common functional patterns allow for the student to immediately see what is being asked of them, and to progress in a systematic and logical manner.
