    @AnneAulisRobin yes, that isn’t the first. I mean that is the fourth
    tutorial with janes voice! xDD

    Hearing your voice will change the way I look up against life forever…

    Sounds like the math teacher is still in you 🙂 This certainly helps with
    Debussy; Arabesque in particular – I still can’t believe how easy it is for
    you to play that (difficult for me) piece!

    @l33tr3t once you get used to the rhythm it would become automatic. you
    won’t need to count anymore. so keep practicing. 🙂

    You also can use “guiding words” to feel the rythm. For me, cause I’m
    russian it’s word “чер-но-бро-ва” [chernobrova] for 2 against 3. You can
    hear it in origianl version of song called “Ukrainian Bell Carol” in

    but for example, if i have 11 against 6 notes… the common multiple is
    66…. no one is able to subdivide 66 notes over the beat of the song ….
    i think is better to do it with a sense of freedom keepin the notes
    organized with the phrase

    Study what I did here, but follow along with pen and paper. The more brain
    cells we activate, the easier it is to learn and remember.

    @MDkid1 Just saw your comments again. Had made a tutorial “how to line up
    11 notes with 6”. See video response.

    At fast tempos like in Chopin’s Fantaisie Impromptu it’s not going to be
    possible to think about such a small subdivision. Do you just practice at
    slow tempos until your hands know what to do without consciously thinking
    about the timing?

    That’s always been the hurdle with me… Managed to do it roughly, but
    never to get a good pattern of it… Your method is simply logic, excellent
    and can be use in any circumstances, with or without a partition or an
    instrument… Everywhere when we have a little time to spare and to train 🙂

    Fantastic! I learned to play quarter note triplets by ‘feel’, many years
    ago. It was a long, time consuming effort. I have never been able to
    explain to my students adequately how to do his. Now I can. Thank you

    I love you videos. Simple, or complicated, we always learn something. I’ll
    miss them when I won’t have the Internet, except occasionally, at least to
    download the Bach Chaconne. The reason: rent too heavy, almost homeless,
    just found a substitute for awhile… Then don’t know… But meeting you
    was really nice. Have a nice time :)
