How many minutes to practice: 30 mins a day

What to practice: This week Jonah I want you to work from the chorus to the end of Starlight using the beat sheet and form chart. In addition I also want you to practice this doubles exercise.

How to practice efficiently: For Starlight just try to connect which beat happens at which part of the song, the form chart will help with that. Then practice transitions like the fill going into the pre-chorus. Then go through the chrous and work back through the verse to the end of the song. For the doubles exercise, focus on using your wrist and having the sticks come up after the second stroke, relaxation is key!!

Great work today Jonah! Excited to keep working with you this summer!



How many minutes to practice: 15 a day

What to practice: This week Samson I want you to work on getting the first measure of Rock With You up to speed going into the beat at 117 bpm. Then I want you to focus on playing up through the pre-chorus. Here is the link to the recording.

How to practice efficiently: For the intro, take each half of the measure slowly, then put it together, then go into the beat. If you’re having trouble playing the beat at-tempo, work on the speed exercise we were doing earlier. Then work your way slowly through the rest of the transcription as best as you can, using the recording as your guide for your ears.

Great job today Samson, have fun at sailing camp this week!
