Overview

Polymetric Puzzles is a collection of challenges for keyboardists and pianists, focusing on the coordination of both hands. Playing the pieces with each hand separately is rather simple - however when playing hands together, this becomes a difficult challenge. Much of the difficulty is created through the use of polymeters and polyrhythms, which are explained in detail.

The method uses a ""puzzle"" approach, where you are given a segment of music which you construct into a completed piece. The puzzle is solved as the piece is performed.

Selected solutions are provided. These are fully written out manuscript consisting of a variety of composed works based upon polymetric patterns.

There is a large spectrum of levels within this book - from roughly a one-year level to fairly advanced.

The book begins with structured exercises and progresses to more free form approaches to help build your technique for experimentation, improvisation and composition.
