Sunday Session #18: Focus on Your Feet

PERISCOPE VIDEO LESSON REPLAY

Transformation

Having solid feet is just like developing every other percussion skill. You start with something manageable, figure out how it relates to something you already know, and then gradually add on more layers of coordination and skill.

In this lesson, we take basic exercises and discuss how to start layering on syncopated accent patterns. We gradually increase the demand in coordination, but I show you how to break larger phrases into smaller chunks, targeting specific beats as anchor points.

Anyone can coordinate their hands to their feet if they do it slowly, systematically, and spend time practicing – I’ll show you. Being able to coordinate your hands with your feet is a MUST before you hit the field!


Part I: Building up your feet

Constant 8th notes: 8-8-16, Bucks 4’s, Bucks 3’s

Timing and Syncopation: 2 count Duple Timing, Double Beat, Triplet Grid over 16ths

 

Part 2: Submitted Questions

@kevinba246

Hey Huei – have you ever had students that are just not motivated and don’t practice? I’m currently going through that now, and each day I teach them something new, the next day they go back to their old habits. Then, I just end up repeating myself over and over. I would like to hear your opinion on this – thanks, Huei!

Part 3: Lightning Round Q & A
