Headline Drum Clinic: Applying Paradiddles to your Drumming
One of the first exercises that most drummers first master is how to play paradiddles. But what exactly are paradiddles, and how do you play them? In this free drum month workshop, Johann Rossouw will guide you through the basics of playing paradiddles.
This the ideal workshop for all beginner drummers, and you don’t even need to own a full drum kit to participate. To work through the lessons from the workshops, all you’ll need is a set of drumsticks, a practice pad, and a metronome. With those three items, you can take your practicing anywhere you go.
