Time is tight for many of us. If we had unlimited time to shed, we’d probably spend hours behind the kit. But the reality is that life’s twists and turns can keep us busy. Therefore, I try to practice things that exercise multiple skillsets simultaneously. This approach has served well for many of my students over the years. An exercise that I frequently assign deals with three topics simultaneously: the weak hand, subdivisions, and sight-reading skills. The exercises in this lesson may prove useful to quickly sharpen up these areas of your playing.
