Hi everyone,

Here are your practice assignments for this week:

Aidan

Practice the Bossa Nova beat that we worked on this week. Take it slow and approach it the same way that we did in your lesson. First play the right hand and left hand parts together. Then play the left hand together with the feet. Finally, play the right hand together with the feet and count the left hand part out loud. Once you have done that a few times, then try to play all three parts together.

Sam

Practice beats 1 through 4 on the sheet that I gave you. Play them each several times in a row slowly before trying to go faster. Always maintain a steady speed with even rhythms. It’s no good to practice playing something disjointedly without a consistent pulse. This is very important in order to develop consistency in playing these beats.

Josh

Review the triplet rhythms that we worked on before the break. Also, practice the new triplet exercise that I gave you this week as well as the beats. Remember to count the rhythm either out loud or in your head to make sure that you’re playing accurately. You can practice these beats with the song “Oh Darlin’” by the Beatles.

Harrison

Review the rhythms that we worked on in your lesson. Practice counting them out loud while you play it. Make sure that you can play each one at least 4 times in a row without stopping or hesitating. Also, practice moving the rhythms around the drums. Be creative with this and see how many different ways you can think of to move around the drums.
