Rhythmic Deconstruction

Rhythmic Deconstruction


Rhythmic Deconstruction is one of the most effective ways to learn technical passages while strengthening muscle memory and solving problems as you go. Since it's best learned by doing, I've "deconstructed" Mendelssohn's Scherzo and written out every step (and variations, and tips!) note by note. In addition to being an invaluable tool for advanced players, Rhythmic Deconstruction provides a framework for practicing that incorporates rhythm, harmony, airflow, and musical ideas in a thoughtful and practical way.


Note: This chapter is included in "Applied Flute Practice Technique."

Note: I offer a workshop on Rhythmic Deconstruction that can be modified to meet the level or repertoire of your studio. See my "workshops" page or contact me for more information.
