This is a growing resource
As my students gain more skills, I will make and add more pages to this resource.
This means the price of this resource can/will most likely increase in the future.

How I use this resource
I printed out half a class set of these these drill pages (double-sided prints to save paper). My students will share these.

I put the drill exercises in a 3-ring binder

I play drum loops instead of a metronome beat because I want the students to feel the music of these rhythms. My favorite loop is the 100bpm one.

You can see and use the drum loops here: YouTube Channel
