Hello Everyone,


I will be away this weekend, and you will have one of the ABC instructor, David on November 17th. Please prepare to show what you have been working on and bring some relevant questions.

This is the assignment for this week,


Recommended minutes to practice: 30 minutes a day

What to practice: There are two home works that has a star sticker on your note book.

How to practice: red star… practice each beat. e.g.) RRLR, RLRR, LRRL, R.

purple… I suggest practice this pattern very slowly at first. You can gradually increase the tempo with keeping the articulation!


Recommended minutes to practice: 20-30 minutes per day

What to practice: Rudiment #6-10 on the snare drum. C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab major scales in one octave. The Ocean.

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.

Scales…  I would like you to constantly check the hight of both hands and mallets, so that you can play all the notes evenly in terms of dynamics and articulation. Please keep in your mind that flat is added in order of B, E, A, D, and G.

The Ocean… I suggest to read the 3rd and 4th rows. You can read the score further if you like. You might find the beats are quite complexed, and I expect you to bring some questions.


Great work on high-hat open-close exercise last week!!!!

Recommended minutes to practice: 10 minutes twice a day

What to practice: Double (RRLL)

How to practice: I would like you to use the single stroke exercise (keep quoter notes on base drum but go faster on the snare drum) for practicing doubles. e.g.) R    R     L     L, R R L L R R L L, RRRR LLLL RRRR LLLL….

Have a wonderful week,
