    The Foundational Series Practice Session

    The Foundational Series Practice Session

    In this episode we eavesdrop into a Foundational Series Practice Session. You will be able to get a feel for how the class runs, the pacing, and even the hang.

    The Foundational Series is absolutely the material that will give you the strong foundation that you need to progress through polymetric coordination, rhythmic phrasing, and most importantly - concentration and relaxation. I hope to see you at a session soon!

    We also discuss a little about the upcoming masterclass with the great Ed Soph! You don't want to miss this opportunity to hang, listen to, and learn from one of the absolute FINEST educators in the world.

    I hope to see you soon!

    -Rich
