Little Dotted Magic Tricks

More image fun!
Try out these two:








"Hmm," you ask, "What could be the connection this time?"

The Carolina Trombone Collective recently performed a transcription of Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks. The allegro section of the overture has extended passages of dotted rhythms. Like this:










Maybe I'm hyper-sensitive to this but, in rehearsal I gave them grief for slipping into "triplet mode"...






And thus I return to my old theme..Relate to the Familiar!!

What do most kids say after pulling off a magic trick....


TA-DAAAH

It's interesting how, wherever you go, people say those syllables with the same rhythm (quick "TA" right before the "DAAH")

Sooooo...

Think of that dotted rhythm sequence as a string of little magic tricks...
"Daaah, Ta-Daah, Ta-Daah, Ta-Daah, etc.)

Interesting post... I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your blog. I'm sure I'd visit here more often.
