More about the clap your hands course

The clap your hands course consists of 14 lessons x 3 (levels) = 42 exercises

clap your hands to beginners:

After two or three weeks of trying the first level of the first two exercises (NRS), you will  know whether becoming a musician, singer or dancer is for you.

clap your hands to advanced:

Depending on your own pace and commitment, the clap your hands training will take  between 3 months and a half year.

Later one you can also use this training to refresh your rhythmic skills.

clap your hands dancers

Many people still think that music, dance or singing is not for them.

Some think they are too old or, for example  with guitarists that they have too fat fingers, learning to read notes would be difficult, having no time, I cannot do that and all kinds of other excuses to turn away from what they actually  want, namely making music, dancing or singing.

As a guitar teacher it became increasingly clear to me that students could make enormous progress if they practiced the rhythm separately, apart from the technique that each instrument entails. As a result, students and other enthusiasts can concentrate much more easily on what they want to do such as making music, dancing or singing, no longer hindered by the basics, namely the rhythm.

It is true that a small group of people is A-rhythmic, which means that they will always have difficulty mastering the rhythm and therefore always have difficulty playing an instrument, dancing or singing. It is especialy very useful for these people to take this course. It  saves these people a lot of time and money too, because they can already know with certainty after a few weeks whether it is worthwhile or not to purchase an expensive instrument or take expensive music, dance or singing lessons, if their talents lie elsewhere,  than with music, dance or singing.

If you cannot master the first two lessons of the course after 3 weeks, that is to say, clap simultaneously with the exercises, you can assume that your talents are probably elsewhere.

In that case, you have saved yourself a lot of time, money and effort.

Some enthusiastic reactions from students.

Fanny Oppenheim

I thought I would never learn to play the drums and I actually wanted to give up until I came across this training.

Start with the basics and everything is now much clearer.

When jogging, I think of rhythms such as one-a-and-a, two-a-and-a. I adjust my tempo to the beat.

Even when I’m on the train I listen to all kinds of rhythms around me or I listen to the exercises of clapyourhands.

Glad my dad found this course on the internet.

Because I now have a good grasp of the basics, I have less trouble with the technique of my piano.

At first I didn’t believe it. Just learning the rhythm seemed very boring to me. Now that I have taken the training, I know that you can also turn it into a game.

We speed up the pace with friends and see who makes the fewest mistakes. That is fun to do.

About myself.

I myself started taking music lessons at a later age. In earlier years I sang the Latin mass in the church choir, without knowing anything about rhythm let alone what the Latin meant. Later on  I had to sing in the Gregorian choir obligated by my parents. Gregorian chant has no measures. Because of this upbringing, I had a lot of trouble with the rhythm in the early years. This is one of the reasons why I started this training. In my years as a guitar teacher, I often had children and adults in class who had trouble with the rhythm. I immediately recognized that from my own experiences.
