How many minutes to practice: 15-30

What to practice: Great job with Seven Nation Army Lucas, you should feel very proud playing through it all the way! This week I want you to write in all of the counts for the rhythm of the Lesson 6 reading. If you feel up to it you can try playing it as well!

How to practice effectively: In Lesson 6 we’re learning how to count sixteenth notes, which are the notes that are connected by the two horizontal lines instead of one, like eighth notes. While eighth notes are counted 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +, sixteenth notes are counted 1e+a 2e+a 3e+a 4e+a. So for this week I want you, with the help of mom or dad, to write in the count for each note above the note with a pencil, like the book has on the first line. If you need any help don’t be afraid to reach out to my email: [email protected].

Awesome job today Lucas! Remember to play a little bit of drums every day!

What to practice: This week Jonah I want you to write in all of the counts for the accents on the Peters IV accent exercise and work on High Hopes by Panic! at The Disco. Here is a link to the song.

How to practice effectively: I would like you to finish writing in the counts for the Peters IV accent exercise, so just continue to go through the page and write in all of the counts above the accents. Then next week we’ll run through the whole thing. In addition we’ll keep working on High Hopes.

Sorry you were feeling down today Jonah, thanks for sticking it out and playing some music with me today!

What to practice: This week Samson I want you to work on Todd Rundgren’s It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference. Keep an eye here on the assignment page for the transcription, I’ll be posting in a couple days.

How to practice effectively: Good work so far on this song, right now I want you to focus on getting through the first part of the song up to the chorus. Remember that counting is less about verbalizing something as much as it is just being consistent with the time.

Great job man, see you next week!
