Odd-Meter Rhythmic Studies for the Pianist Ensemble
A hands-on, in-depth study of odd meters (5/4, 7/4, 5/8, 11/8 and 15/8) using rhythmic speech and counting/tapping of various groupings and accents. These exercises will take place at the piano and away from the instrument and will emphasize repetition to give the student time to internalize the groove of each meter. Through an in-depth study of cross-rhythms, listening to significant performances and transcribing musical examples, students will be expected to produce and perform arrangements of standards and/or original compositions utilizing odd meters.
