Regarding Ms Anna

If you are a teacher on Lessonface who received the message from Ms Anna this afternoon I apologize for the bother with the spam. The user responsible has been blocked from the site, and I wanted to note that here on the blog.

Lessonface Moves - the Why and Where

Lessonface's headquarters are now located at 451 West St, in the West Village of Manhattan. Mark your maps, and head over our way for master classes! 

Expanding Your Ear With Polyrhythms


Play Along MP3 and rhythmic notation.


The goal of this exercise is to familiarize the listener/student with the mental challenges and rhythmic demands of polyrhythms. In this exercise the goals are simple to understand, but harder to master. You do not need to be a drummer or percussionist to get value out of this. Additionally you do not even need an instrument, you can literally tap on any available surface.
