He explains that having good wrists and hands aid in tone production and rhythm. He explains that developing the hands will enable the musician to get a lot of color and control from the instrument such as a cymbal. He discusses his methods of teaching rhythm such as getting the body to move to rhythm, using repetition, and singing. He believes that rhythm usually falls apart due to technical problems.
