In You've Got Rhythm: Read Music Better by Feeling the Beat, Anna Dembska and Joan Harkness effectively collaborate to present a practical yet imaginative guide to improving one's ability to read music. You've Got Rhythm focuses entirely upon the skill of understanding musical rhythm, not musical tones or keys. Pages of examples written in simple musical notes help the beginning, intermediate, or advanced musician better understand syncopation at a visceral level through abundant opportunity to practice. Highly recommended for music students, You've Got Rhythm is an excellent text for classroom instruction or personal tutorials.
