The best way to improve your time is to play with musicians with great time. Unfortunately, we don’t all have that luxury. No worries!

In this video, I’ll show you how to practice with a metronome and even show you a few tricks to really get your rhythmic feel happening!

Eastside Players Live at Eastside Music School

We’ve recently finished out our recording studio so that we can multi-track a live band using multiple recording rooms!
