Student Post- How I Overcame Challenges with Rhythm
Hi my name is Olivia,
Not that long ago I had trouble with rhythm. I got really mad when I couldn't do it. But now what calms me down is I just take a break for 10 or 5 minutes and then I try again. If I got mad again I would take a break for 15 or 20 minutes at that point I didn't get mad anymore. Thanks for reading my letter.
Olivia was having trouble with rhythm and while I suggested that when she got super frustrated she take a small break and come back to her piece, what really worked for her is to count out loud with a metronome and then count and clap with the metronome.
