Live Lesson #6 (Singles) short bursts https://t.co/9slZtjzk1i

Playing fast and even singles can be a little difficult at times if we’re not using the proper technique and focusing more on just the aspect of speed. In this lesson we are learning to double the duration of our 16th notes (32nd notes) so that we can develop short bursts of speed that will carry on to larger bursts of speed throughout the exercise. This will help us develop those fast twitch muscles for us to be able to not only play faster but have more control over the stick and the rebound from the playing surface.
Tip! When playing this exercise be sure to start your metronome off at 60 BPM and play nice even rebound strokes. Apply the fingers along with the wrist in perpetual motion.
