Time: Care and Feeding

Clinic Synopsis:

This clinic is aimed at all musicians and its goal is to solidify and strengthen inner pulse. The time sense of many musicians is outer directed: i.e. guided by an outside source like a metronome or a conductor. My hope is that musicians can rely on their own innate sense of pulse, and through South Indian syllables, learning how to work with a metronome/click track, rhythm exercises, understanding clave, musicians in all fields of performance can develop and rely on their inner pulse.
