Three Ways Independence

Three Ways Independence  comes from years of research on how to develop the most efficient and complete practice method ever created. The goal was to create a method that would save practice time, but still include a step-by-step course with a set of comprehensive exercises that would teach us how to play anything that comes to our mind, and without having to study styles of music outside our interests.

I’ve named this method Three Ways Independence  because the exercises are organized into three different sections, based on the three ways our brain controls our limbs – Horizontal, Vertical and Crisscrossed.

The sequence of exercises will push you to execute all possible permutations of body motions. Once you’ve gone through and studied, practiced, and internalized these exercises, you will no longer have limb independence issues.

– Explanation
– The Alphabet
– Horizontal: Leading with the hands
– Horizontal: Leading with the feet
– Vertical: Leading with the right
– Vertical: Leading with the left
– Crisscrossed: Leading with the right hand and left foot
– Crisscrossed: Leading with the left hand and right foot
