Learning French Dance Rhythms

Thanks for that link. These are very interesting!


My musical journey has been crabbing sideways through song and dance and playing various instruments in various genres. I agree with the idea that seeing the dancing greatly informs the playing of the tunes set for the various dances.

When I was first starting out playing for dancing, someone pointed out that it's called playing #for# dancing. It's not something that happens to be going on in the same room that you're playing a concert, it's the whole reason you are there playing.


Says it all really, and whenever I'm playing for dancing I hope I keep that thought in mind.
