Rudiment practice question.


Recommended Posts

I can find plenty of videos on YouTube covering various rudiments but they don"t explain best practice methods. Am I better off practicing one rudiment for 10 minutes or 10 rudiments for 1 minute each? What is a good schedule for someone learning rudiments?

I've always heard anything between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on other factors like specific objectives and available time to play.

I usually do them while watching tv, so I may do some only a few times and some for much longer.


I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.

When I was teaching, I had good results with grouping rudiments, beats or techniques that were complimentary to practice in blocks. This way, you don't get bored with one over and over, but have a little variety while working on a group of similar things. Then add the next group that builds on that, then another, then another...


May ways to slice this pie.
