  • Pleeeeease print this [<–– BLUE TEXT IS “CLICKABLE”] and bring it to your next lesson along with your other drum sheets.
  • Watch this video on note duration. The good bits are from 2:05 – end. It’s obviously made for people younger than yourself, but I think it does a good job of explaining things, especially in the song at the end.
