How many minutes to practice: 30 mins a day

What to practice: This week Jonah I want you to practice the doubles exercise Gallop and look at this transcription of Rock With You by Michael Jackson.

How to practice effectively: For Gallop work on keeping things slow and your doubles consistent. For Rock With You, work on keeping the notes on the hi-hat nice and low instead of loud. Play through as much as you can!

Keep up the good work this week Jonah!



How many minutes to practice: 15 a day

What to practice: This week Samson I want you to get all we have of Rock With You going at a slow speed, especially the last two measures of the pre-chorus. Here is the link to the recording.

How to practice effectively: Try to nail all of the transitions and grooves, especially the last line. Listen to the song and figure out how fast you can play it well at this point. Work out each measure, and put them together!

Great job today Samson, keep it up!!



How many minutes to practice: 30mins a day

What to practice: This week Sylvie I want you to play the beats in Lesson 11. Additionally I want you to write out the main beat to So Much to Say by Dave Matthews and play along with with the song as much as you can.

How to practice effectively: For the beats, go slowly and try to count all the 16th notes out (1e+a 2e+a 3e+a 4e+a) and just get comfortable with the coordination, the speed will come later! Write out the beats with the hi-hat on the top line, snare drume on the middle line, and bass drum on the bottom line.

Good work today Sylvie!!
