Exercise Notes SINGLE HANDED SIXTEENTH NOTES
Keep all notes even in time spacing, volume level, and tone. Play for 2 min with your left-hand then 2 min with your right. Tip: Use the same stick for the right hand and left-hand so that you can aim for the same pitch (some drumsticks make a noticeable difference in pitch especially when played on a practice pad).
At beginner and intermediate level, it is highly advisable to practice this exercise at least once per day. Remember to stop and take a rest or do some hand and arm stretching if you start to feel strained or uncomfortable. This exercise provides a rapid improvement in playing ability, particularly for speed and endurance.
