Dennis DeLucia, Vic Firth Artist and Education Team Member devised the "Logical Learning Sequence" to give directors, instructors and students an approach to learning the rudiments that takes into account difficulty, inclusion of rudiments from each "rudimental family" and the popular usage. The 10 rudiments in Quadrant A form the basis for all of the other rudiments. Beginning students (or "first-timers" to the rudiments) should begin there and eventually progress through the other quadrants after they have achieved a medium level of proficiency ("silver or gold level").
NEW! The entire Learning Sequence is now available in PDF format!
Each PDF includes the rudiment, rudiment application and progress chart so that you can print it out and take it with you or pass out to your students! The Acrobat Reader plugin is required.
