David S. - Phase 1 - Peggy Gillies

Overall Rhythm Comments from Grader:

Hi David. Excellent job. Your vocalized rhythms here were both correct and accurate. Just a small note though: The cut dot rhythm is technically "3 e" not "3 &." Or you could use the Dojo vocalization syllables such as "ta ta ah tachum ta." Having said that, congratulations and welcome to phase 2. Good Luck. Cheers, Ed

  1. Thanks Ed! I did initially try to use the canonical "beat, e, and, a" system for subdivision, but with the cut-dot rhythms in the tune, I found it difficult to vocalize "3-e" in a clear manner, so I opted for "3-and". I'm going to try the system you suggested going forward. Seems much better suited for piping music
