1-Handed ChoomBoonk for the Other Foot
by Jack Van der Wyk
A systematic progression of
rhythmic exercises for the solo LEFT foot in coordination with only one hand
at a time. In ChoomBoonk notation - inspired by oral teaching
traditions of Eastern culture.
Musicians and Advanced Students know that clean rhythm and time keeping are
essential qualities characterizing the most respected musicians. In
line with such goals, they may rely upon this book to help achieve more
accurate and incisive left foot playing.
Students will find the beginning of this book to be ideal in introducing
left foot work. It is recognized here that four-limb coordination is
an unreasonably difficult undertaking before the student has reached a level
of confidence and competence with the left foot in conjunction with only one
other limb at a time.
book may be used early, even before steadiness appears in the right foot.
