No Rhythm? No Problem!
How To Develop A Good Sense Of Rhythm Without Counting
Whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes...and on and on they go. I understood them all and could count any combination of beats, but I lacked a good sense of timing, or a good feel for music.
This may be hard to comprehend, especially if you're new to the piano, but it's just one of those situations in music education that is often missed or just plain overlooked.
So while it's helpful to know how to count the many different types of music notes, it's not the end all, be all.
In fact, I know quite a few musicians who have no formal musical training, and yet they have a great feel for music. It's no surprise that many of them are guitarists. In my experience, guitarists seem to have better musical timing than piano players. There's just something about strumming a guitar that contributes to good timing.
