Here are the etudes I’ve been using for some of you:

Since most of you are here to learn kit: just a reminder that any snare exercises we do you can at least add the kick drum for yourself as an additional challenge. It will also help you stay in time in the long run.


Work on your rolls primarily and practice with a metronome as much as possible to work on stability. We’ll keep reading some new stuff next week.


Keep going with the new material I left you before the break but focus on adding bass drum to the exercises you’ve learned. Try to play those exercises more like a performance rather than just a bunch of random notes, we’ll work on that for the next while.


Nice seeing you after so long! Mess around with gridding different rudiments you can think of. Just work on the etude we played today and we’ll see where it’s at next week.

Happy new year!
