Hand Posture
Student Notes While we are learning "Chords" and how to construct them, I have an assignment for you. It's the "Rocking Hand Motion" that you see in the two pictures on the left. This hand motion will be used for playing many Left Hand basic rhythms. These basic rhythms can be played in the left hand while the right hand is playing the melody line. On the next page will be the rhythms I want you to learn. Practice each left hand rhythm for 2 minutes every day for 2 weeks. It is important that you do this to train your brain to keep a steady rhythm in your left hand so that you can be free to play a melody line in your right hand.
