Basic Subdivisions (video)

It’s so important to be able to play different note values evenly within tempo. In order to internalize the subdivisions it’s helpful to play them against a quarter note. In this video we’ll play quarter notes with our feet and the subdivisions (Quarter Notes, Eighth Notes, Eighth Note Triplets, and Sixteenth) as alternating single strokes. We play the quarter note under all the subdivisions in order to establish that as our anchor. This video is especially valuable to beginners.
