Explore Rhythm Improvisation as a series of individual pulses under your direct command and control!

Maybe you are a musician who has tried traditional methods but feel that there is more to know with no clear direction of where to find it.

Or perhaps you are a musician that has found endless rigid exercises to occupy your time and provide some degree of challenge but do not carry you all of the way into the universe of Rhythm Improvisation as you had hoped.

You could even be a beginner or a novice musician just starting out on your journey!

If you are a musician who has struggled with music notation, think of the "advantages" and "insights" that could be gained by understanding the mathematical rhythmic patterns and physics behind music notation. 

Easy Stepping Stones to Rhythm Improvisation will build a mental visualization of Rhythm Improvisation within your mind that enables you to navigate the Rhythmic Landscape "intuitively"! Once you learn the basic puzzles your are able to "steer" your own personal exploration of rhythm. Instead of mechanically practicing lists of exercises that do not take you exactly where "you" want to go, follow your curiousity intuitively and naturally without having to first "think in music notation".    

This Kindle eBook Series is great for Guitar, Keyboard, or Drum musicians. Kindle eBooks can be read on Kindle devices, iPad, and Personal Computers that have the Kindle eBook App installed.

  Level 1

Level 1 – Use clever puzzles to learn to improvise rhythm. Gain "direct access" to 494 Rhythm Patterns. Great for all musicians who want to understand rhythm to deeper granularity with widest variation spectrum. Learn to design and perform Improvisation Models. Learn how to use a metronome.  

Level 2 Level 2 – Extend your journey to improvise even more complex rhythm patterns. Study two dimensional time with complex subdivisions.

243,542 Rhythm Pattern Combinations are exposed as Improvisation Models and Subdivision Contrast Pairs for you to exploit! 
       Now Also  Available In These Countries!  

Rhythm Improvisation is juggling. It is starting one pattern and then jumping to the next seamlessly. It helps to have a small vocabulary of patterns at your command in the beginning to get you started but that alone will not be enough. You'll also need to know how to use the starting pattern as a Seed from which you can grow other related patterns. This breaks you from the chains of memorizing long sequences. Instead, we memorize only the individual patterns and from there we can perform any series we sequence with the patterns we know. Next, we learn to create variations by pushing the Strong Pulse into different Pulse Positions. This is very similar to changing the accented syllable of a word to inject emphasis. In conversation you already know how to do this by changing the accented syllable in a word which is natural and easy and can be done on-the-fly as you are speaking to insert personality and feeling into the conversation. We can apply this same Accent Shift to Rhythm Patterns!  

This series was created by a former guitar instructor who happened to later move into the telecommunications field as a Java programmer/analyst Senior Network Engineer and developed music simulations software as a hobby. All of the insights found in this series were acquired from years of software design experience intermixed with the experience of a guitar instructor.  

Explore Rhythm!

Create Complex Patterns!

Apply to Guitar, Keyboards, and Drums.

A concise Step by Step approach that links the most basic concepts up to the more complex rhythm pulse manipulations.

Rhythm is fluid. The starting point of rhythm is the individual rhythm pulse. Pulses can be aggregated to create complex Rhythm Patterns. 

The metronome is key to mastering complex rhythm patterns and rhythm algorithms provide a fresh perspective to visualize and improvise rhythm.
