How to Play in Odd Time Signatures

Wouldn’t it be great to feel comfortable

playing music in any time signature?

There is an easy system, and:

– it doesn’t take a lot of math,

  • Using a series of mp3s and pdfs, master teacher Dennis Winge walks you through each step in an easy-to-follow and laid-back manner.  If you have questions, you can simply email him at the address found inside the course.
  • With this course you also get no less than 65 backing tracks (in the form of loops to be played on your computer) with bass and drums to help you explore plenty of time signature territory!
