How do you count music? What's an 8-count? How do you hear the beat in a song?
Want to clap to a song the right way and feel like you're a member of the band? Want to develop your musicality? Want to appreciate music viscerally–in your body, not your head? Then take the first step: learn how to count beats in a song. It's easy because the 8-count, which is used by professional dance choreographers, is related to music theory but simpler. (The two systems can coexist, really.)
In this book you will learn:

This book is for anyone who wants to find their groove while listening to music. Whether you workout to music; or do dance fitness (aerobics, Zumba, etc.); or do ballet or partner dancing; or do hip hop on your kitchen floor; or want to choreograph dance; or want to deejay; or simply want to enjoy listening to music more, this book has the instruction that beginners need to unlock their natural rhythm. If you want to be a musician, it'll even help with timing issues when playing an instrument.
