What to practice: Rudiment #6-10 on the snare drum. Turkish March

How to practice:

Rudiment… Set your metronome quoter equal to 60 and play each note even. More details about the rudiment… #7, RRLLR LLRRL. #8, R LLRRL R LLRRL. #9, RRLLRRL RRLLRRL. #10, RRLLRRLLR LLRRLLRRL.

Turkish March… It was a great play in your last lesson! I would suggest you to continue learning the notes PHRASE BY PHRASE. Since you know this piece, you might be hearing this music in the fast tempo. However, I would like you to take a very slow tempo when you study the music.
