Whether taking percussion lessons, playing in a drum circle, or studying music formally, these Rhythmic Concepts are essential to your understanding. They are so essential that we thought we couldn’t afford to exclude them from this sampler site for African Drumming Online.
In your study and percussion lessons, you might have heard of terms like 4/4, 6/8, and 12/8. In these sample videos, Jacob explains what these terms mean, how to feel the different types of rhythms, and why they’re important.
