3/100 Teaching Syncopation in a samba class

I needed something to fill the last few minutes of a year 4 5 samba class this week…

Everybody play SYN——co-PAT—shun; feel the pulse on SYN and PA with your feet. Play that four times and STOP

Just play SYN and imagine the co-PA—shun;  now play that four times and STOP

Just play ——-co-  and imagine the other syllables; now play that four times and STOP (It helps if you feel the pulse in your feet)

To really challenge everyone, pick random syllables from the word and try them in combination.

Oh, is that the time? Quietly pack away please.
