Practice Suggestions

 
  SCHEDULE:
Dedicate yourself to a time during the day to practice and commit to it.

TIME:
Practice all material you are to work on at different tempos with a metronome, drum machine or sequencer.

DYNAMICS:
Distance = Volume. Practice all material at different stick heights.

TAPE YOURSELF:
Listen for feel, tendency to rush or drag, creativity, taste, balance etc. Remember, the tape doesn't lie.

EXPERIMENT:
Be creative! Once you have learned an exercise, try to explore other areas such as beat displacement or meter modulation, to come up with new ideas.
