Drumline Exercises

Hi Moms – Stick Visual Rhythm Exercise

Triplet-based “Hi Mom” build-up. This starts from the most basic check pattern and increases all the way to the full “Hi-Mom.” The toughest part doesn’t seem to be getting someone to do the pinwheel motion with the left hand, it’s getting that left-handed note placed in the right spot for the correct rhythm. In this video I’ve played a triplet roll in front of it but this exercise just works the “Hi Mom” portion.
