Experiential Learning by Jacob Collier

Here’s what Jacob has to say about learning how to gain great rhythmic abilities,


For me, experiential learning is way, way more important than intellectual learning.

“Poly-rhythms is about being exact but life is not about being exact”.

“In life,

   you learn most - 
  when you take a step forward,
when you get started doing something,
when you get your hands dirty;

With poly-rhythms

it is best to get yourself into a situation
where you have to use a poly-rhythm and
you are already performing. “

For me, experiential learning is way, way more important than intellectual learning.

Life is about interactions and experiences.

In life, if you can get yourself into a situation where you are learning by doing, it is so much better than learning by thinking.

With poly-rhythms, I’d encourage you to learn by doing it rather than learning by thinking about it.

  1. Great advice from Jacob – and remember Jacob has probably already out-thought all of us – when it comes to things like rhythms, it is better to experience them than “think it”. That’s how we see playing to great grooves – it is so much better to always be playing to great grooves than anything else. It is so easy to do this with Song Rhythm Tracks!
