Pat Petrillo’s “Learn to Read Rhythms” Review

Monday, March 3, 2014 @ 11:03 AM
posted by: admin

This program teaches you how to read rhythms in beginning to advanced levels. Play along with Pat as a digital pointer guides you through each on-screen example, with a click track provided. A “Sound Picture” method of associating how each rhythm looks with how it sounds, you will become a better, more confident reader. Also included is a 105-page eBook and MP3 clips of each example! Topics include basic rhythm notation; quarter, eighth, and sixteenth note combinations; all dotted rhythms and rest combinations; syncopation notation combinations in “straight” and “swing” interpretations; all triplet rhythm combinations; common and odd time signatures; and codas and repeats. It’s the reading boot camp that comes with a teacher!
