Basic Drum Rudiments

This fundamental rudiment sheet lists 16 basic snare drum rudiments that every young percussionist should learn. Also, it breaks down how stroke rolls can be counted easily. Whether a 5-stroke or 17-stroke, once you get the hang of this method, counting strokes for your rolls will be effortless. Use this sheet in your daily rudimentary practice. Rudiments should be practiced in an open-close-open format that is meant for increasing speed without sacrificing accuracy. When practicing outside of the open-close-open format, be sure to use a metronome in order to gain a better understanding of the timing that goes along with each rudiment. Happy practicing.
