Ok, what SKILLS are covered?  Legatos, 16th note and triplet "check patterns", multi-beats, stroke types:  up-, down-, prep-, buzz-, full- and tap-strokes, triplet accent patterns, 16th note accent patterns, paradiddle rudiments, triplet rolls, 16th note rolls, metric modulations, 32nd note stick control patterns, flams.....and how to analyze a phrase to find your own CHECKS.  


Here’s why our book ROCKS:  Students can play every line in the entire book along with Mad Beatz Methods’ #practiceplaylists - or their own favorite songs - building listening skills and passion for practice!  It’s a great resource for grades 7 & up.
