Warm-up: singles, doubles, paradiddles over feet ostinatos with metronome.
Rudiments, rudiments, rudiments. Today Flam rudiments are on order.
Sight reading: Good sight-reading chops are required for all teachers. And, community band musicians. When I sub in a big band, fumbling with unfamiliar charts is out of the question. Sight-reading skills are one of the cornerstones of my professional success as a musician. Forty-five years and counting!
Repertoire review: Pandemic will over next year. I will have my classic rock repertoire up to speed and ready to go.
Double bass drum pedal rudiments: Single and double patterns.
Drumming skills: Bebop vocabulary including fills, riffs, and set-ups.
Review my students' repertoire and lesson plans.
