Basic Linear Training Exercise


The third lesson in our exclusive Musicians Institute lesson series, this time we explore exercises that are designed to help you feel a repeated linear pattern of three sixteenth notes that travel over the bar. By doing this exercise you will be able to feel syncopated linear patterns in all possible sixteenth note subdivisions.


All of the notation for this lesson is included in the above PDF along with some helpful tips and diagrams. Be sure to print it, and take it to your music stand!
