10 MINUTE WARMUP

I know  a lot of people don’t have a ton of time in their day to practice and that is what I have in mind here. If you have about 10 minutes, you can run through this exercise and be able to give the paws a little love for the day.

This started as something I wanted the students at Avon to run through at least once a day, seeing the results, I know it can help anyone out there.  Of course, if you want to really get better, ya need more than 10 minutes a day (I would recommend about an hour if possible), but I promise, doing this either as a warmup for practice, or all that you do in a day, you should start to notice some results in height control and general quality in short order.

This episode has to do with playing paradiddles, paradiddle diddles and the rest of the family leading with the left hand.  I have taken a pretty standard exercise and modified it to go “off the left.”


These exercises are taken directly from my book: “The Next Level: Rudimental Drumming Techniques
