The Art of Dexterity
The Technology of Rhythmic Dexterity, Methodology
The Technology of Rhythmic Dexterity is the premier methodology for creative musicians who require advanced levels of technical skill for composing, producing, and performing music. Used in conjunction with the Rhythmic Dexterity Pad® training equipment, the book guides artists through innovative ideas on how rhythm can be used to facilitate athletic movements of the hands, to develop agility, strength, and power in fingers.
This engaging system may be used for warming up, prior to practicing or performing, and as an alternative to traditional forms of technical study (such as using scales and arpeggios, exercises, or études). The method also clarifies the rhythmic capabilities of the body before approaching deeper artistic work on an instrument.
The Technology of Rhythmic Dexterity provides musicians at any playing level, with broader knowledge on how to use the hands on their particular instrument. It also features the first fully formed system of notational display, called ambi-notation (ambidextrous notation), showing a clear way to visualize rhythm for the two hands and ten fingers.
This comprehensive guide is written for all musicians who use their hands for creative music making, and who require advanced levels of coordination and dexterity for music performance. Keyboardists, music producers, composers, string, woodwind, and brass players—can all utilize the concepts presented for warming up, stretching, maintaining facility, and developing a powerful technique.
