I hope the week has been good to you.
A quick one this week.
If you want to work on your ability to hear when the beat is, then a good way is to make music of your own. And a fun way to make your own music is Jam Studio - http://www.jamstudio.com/Studio/indexStudio.htm.
I used this myself when I wanted to improve my ability to hear the beat and keep time.
You use a visual interface to make music so you can see it play. You can choose your instruments, tempo and chords. By watching the player move through the bars you designated you can see the change and note what to listen for. You then get a better understanding of music - and that makes you a better dancer.
It's also just fun making your own music.
