Counting "sets of 8" in the music (video: 1 min. 15 sec.)

In this clip we count the “sets of 8” in the music. A “set of 8” defines the beat of the music and the ability to count the “sets of 8” is the only way to confirm that you're on the beat. In particular, pay attention to the hand motion we use as we count as it's a good exercise to bring the beat into your body.
