NYC Tap, Vol. 1 by Thommie Retter is the first in a series of technique classes including Barre and Center Floor exercises and combinations designed to make your classes productive and impressive. This technique is a great “enhancer” for your students at the low intermediate level.
Thommie Retter was a student of Al Gilbert’s, so you will see a solid foundation of tap steps, just like building blocks, throughout this collection. Including this work in your tap class will reinforce your tappers ability. It’s fun, it’s fresh and it WORKS!
All of the music contained in this technique series is original piano accompaniment with upbeat rhythms orchestrated specifically for each individual exercise. Each track is offered with both vocal instruction by Thommie Retter AND instrumental tracks. Many tracks are offered with multiple tempos as well.
