Hello everyone,

Here are your practice assignments for this week:

Ella

Recommended minutes to practice: 20-30 minutes per day

What to practice: Drum beats #1-#8 from last week and “Should I Stay Or Should I Go”

How to practice: The new drum patterns on “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” are slightly tricky. I suggest you to practice your hands and feet separate. Once you get used to playing the pattern with your hands and the right foot individually, you can put them together in the slow tempo. I recommend to not push the tempo until you feel comfortable with the rhythm.

How parents can support practice: Creating a space and time for your child to focus on their practice session everyday bases will help them developing a great practice habit.

Eric

Recommended minutes to practice: 20-30 minutes per day

What to practice: drum-beats #6 from last week and a new drum beat.

How to practice: I would suggest you to practice your hands and feet separate at first. Please make sure that you are playing high-hat and snare drum comfortably without hitting them hard. Practice slow is always better idea to learn new drum beat.

Sylvie

Recommended minutes to practice: 20-30 minutes per day

What to practice: paradiddles #1-#4 and a high-hat exercise.

How to practice: I recommend to practice paradiddle #1 at first. It might takes you sometime to get comfortable with it, but that is very normal. Once you get the sticking of the paradiddle, I suggest you to add an accent on every down beat. Although, this is optional. For the high-hat exercise, please make sure to practice slow and listen to the sound you make.
