How many minutes to practice: 15-30mins

What to practice: This week Sebastian I want you to work on the Lesson 3 beats and reading.

How to practice effectively: Good work today Sebastian! If you can see if you can get a hold of the book we’re using, its Joel Rothman’s Reading, Rudiments, and Rock Drumming. This week, write in the counts (1+2+3+4+) for the Lesson 3 reading above the notes, then try counting it out loud while clicking your sticks, then try playing it on the drum. For the beats, just go slowly and if its helpful try writing the counts for the bass drum underneath the notes as well.

Good to see you today, keep up the good work!

What to practice: Your assignment this week Samson is to practice 10 mins a day and report back to me next week on how it went. Also listen to Todd Rundgren’s It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference at least once a day. Here is the UPDATED TRANSCRIPTION.

How to practice effectively: Hey Samson, most of this stuff I wrote from last week is still applicable so I’m gonna leave it up, this week try focusing on the 2nd chorus to the bridge!

Good work today Samson! But you know where the trouble spots are! Spend 90% of your time practicing fills, thats what needs the most practice right now. And you know what I’m going to say too: keep that triplet fill tight and make sure the tempos stay consistent throughout the transitions. Try aiming for 10mins a day when you can, but the point is not to be perfect of kill yourself trying to get 10 minutes in, its just to see how this goal works out. Then next week you can tell me about the results of this experiment.

Be sure to have your mom send your vaccine info to ABC if you want to start meeting in person, that would be awesome!
