Finding "One" Over the Wires: Doug's Update

This is part of a series on assisting someone to hear the time in the music; check out the links at the bottom of this article to see the previous articles in the series.

This is a quick and dirty update. Doug Fox (http://www.greatdance.com/) has posted an article about our "Over the Wires" experience.

If you're following our progress, I suspect you'll find it interesting to hear about it from his perspective. I posted an article a few days ago with my point of view, so check out both for a more complete picture.

In case you are new to this blog, Doug Fox (of "Dancing Into the Future" fame) and I are working on a project where I'm helping him to find "one" in the music, without ever meeting face-to-face. For details on how this got started, check out the previous articles:

  1. How is the training and progress going? Picked up on the article thread from both blogs, and curious to see how the progression is going, and what things are added or explored once finding the beat is nailed down.

  2. Tom,

    Doug is on his own these days. This whole process was a little less formal than most since I was doing it free.

    Last I checked he was hearing the time and nailing the count in most music, including music we never reviewed.

    I've sent him mail to see how he's doing, and I'll post something as soon as he responds.


I love feedback. Your thoughts, feelings and comments are appreciated. Civil disagreements and other points of view are always welcomed!

Feel free to send me private mail if appropriate.
