Making Music with Polyrhythms

Josh discusses many ways to get you started with building your ideas, along with other tips and tricks to incorporate into your own original music creation, no matter what style of music.
About the Josh Bess Webinar Series
In this series, Josh takes you into his home studio in Tokyo, Japan, and invites you to watch his video streaming webinar series. Each tutorial includes a recording of a live-streamed video lesson including a Q&A session with the participants. This is a new form of instruction as viewers participate with questions that Josh answers within the session, so each webinar has an intimate feel to it as if you are attending a private lesson with the expert.
