Daily amount of minutes to practice: 30
What to practice: Practice the first 13 measures of the 1st Peters Intermediate etude as well as the beats from Lesson 13
How to practice effectively: With the rhythm etude, focus on matching the volume between your two sticks. Pay close attention to the height that you’re lifting each of your sticks. Make sure that the left hand is just as engaged as the right hand and that you’re lifting the stick the same height on both sides. With the drum beats, focus on the sixteenth notes on the snare drum. These notes are to be played in between the hi-hat notes. When the beats start to feel comfortable, then try pairing them together and playing two beats in a two-bar loop.
