The Power of Dynamics
The term dynamics refers to how loudly or softly the music is played. Without changes in dynamics, music can sound dry or even robotic. This lesson is designed to show how greatly dynamics effect the feel of a drum beat.
To demonstrate this, we'll use accents on the hi-hat to dramatically change the feel of the beats. By listening to and studying the feel that various dynamic techniques produce, you'll be better prepared to deliver the beat that meets the needs of the song.
