Together Again

Improve timing and tightness of your ensemble.

  • Pick one person to be the leader.
  • This person plays a rhythm on one note.
  • The rest of the group must copy exactly how the leader plays this rhythm. The goal here is to play exactly together. Instrumental technique, articulation and musicianship will all affect your ability to be exactly in time.
  • Pick a new leader.
  • Repeat.

You should begin with some simple rhythms and perhaps use a metronome to keep you in time. Once you have perfected these simple rhythms move onto something more complex. Do not try to play anything too complex to soon.
