Some say the most recognizable parts of music are the melody and harmony. But the thing that brings music to life is the “Rhythm” — It truly is the Heartbeat of Music. Rhythm works behind the scenes to set a foundation from which harmony and melody can shine, by establishing and building upon “the beat.”
In this lesson you’ll learn about subdividing, dividing your beats into sections, resulting in smaller and faster notes.
