In Timing Book 1 we covered the importance of timing from the very basics of bar lines, time signatures, note values and the equivalent musical rests. We also looked at the need to actually count the beats per bar of a piece of music and how to do that. We also looked at features like the basic metronome found on most keyboards which can be very useful.


In this book we will cover far more examples of playing between the beat which (frankly) is more difficult than playing 'on the beat' but is a very essential skill to learn. We will also look at some different and more advanced types of time signatures and cover what the lower number of a time signature actually means. There will be, as in Book 1, some timing examples for your to practice this more advanced timing theory.


If this subject is totally new to you we suggest you start with Book 1 of this three book 'Timing' series as it is really important to get the foundations very securely in place before moving onto the more advanced topics we will cover in this book.

It's all about the Timing Part 2
