Here is the Secret:  Change the melody tones by swinging & with syncopation

Many students find it difficult to change the rhythm of a song. The reason is that we are too concerned following music score and we want to play all the specific tones on even rhythm. 

In this course, you are going to find that by changing the melody tones:

1.  Swing the melody tones

2.  Syncopate the melody tones

3.  Learn to play on the 'off-beat'

We will use the song "Jingle Bell Rock"  line by line so that you have lots of practice!

  • know your target tones

  • swing the melody tones

  • play a note a bit longer than the next one

  • swing with your fingers

  • dance with your fingers

  • sing along

  • play with some exaggeration to create different rhythm

  • relax your fingers

  • loosen up to play with freedom

  • listen to the off-beat place

  • V7 Fillers

Bonus Video: Use Contrary motion to create a FINALE Ending!

Once you know how to apply this to "Jingle Bell Rock", you will be able to apply the same principles to other songs.
