Intro to Musicality


This is a selection of swing & RnB tracks used in classes to illustrate basic concepts in musicality for swing dancers. We use these tracks in class to illustrate texture and structure as separate concepts, then to understand how texture relates to structure by listening to how levels, moods and instruments play different roles within the phrasing of the music.

The main idea is to open our ears and understand these fundamental concepts.

This is my favorite mix on this site, if I could favorite it more than once I would. The descriptions of what to look for in the song are AWESOME! Please put out a Musicality 101 mix for those of us who graduated from this first mix. :)
