Hello Everyone,

Sorry this is a little late for those of you I had on Tuesday. All the information is for everyone this week so take some time to read it.


I will be seeing those who usually have Tuesday lessons at their regular times in the coming week but the week after that lessons will temporarily be moved to Saturday. Please check in with Barnaby if there are any issues.


I have introduced stick control in all of my lessons this week. Here is the link to the file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_PprRoGbEO1Evthjesdgsb4RluAeEYcx/view?usp=drivesdk

Everyone should play at least 1- 4 from the page I showed you. Ideally the goal is to play 1-13 in a row without stopping. Most of you will keep working on that over the next couple of weeks.

How to use stick control:

Please use a metronome; it is your friend! ~60 – 80bpm = quarter note (2 hits per tick)

If you read the instructions from the book it will say to play each line 20 times before moving on. All I ask is 4 repetitions. Make sure to pay attention to basic technique and above all STAY RELAXED. Playing with improper technique can cause permanent injury so if you ever feel any pain or tension then take a break and let me know in the lesson.

  1. Good work and have a nice rest of the week!
