In Timing Book1 and Book2 we covered the main basic points about the vast and important topic of timing.

In this last book in the series we will cover some advanced timing theories and some slightly variable and optional topics – phrasing and syncopation. These are recognised 'techniques' but require the players own interpretation and application of the process.


We will also look at some techniques to develop your 'internal metronome'. We talked in Book 1 about, long term, becoming a 'master' of the beat. That sounds very dramatic but it is a good goal to aim for. The good news is the beat doesn't really change. Yes, it can be slow or fast, it can be in 4/4 time or 6/8 time and many others, but the beat is the pulse of the music, which is most cases never changes. The frustration with the beat is it is never wrong once you have the time signature and set the tempo...the only part of the process that is variable is you the player. 

It's all about the Timing Part 3
