Here we are going to use 5 breakfast rhythms in various combinations to make up the 10 exercises for the snare drum. We use the words phonetically to help play the rhythms.

  • TEA (One quarter note
  • COFFEE (Two 8th notes)
  • SAUSAGES (Two 16th notes and an 8th note)
  • EGG&BACON (Four 16th notes)
  • BLUE BERRIES (One 8th note and two 16th notes)

These beginners snare drum exercises will help to read and play basic rhythm groupings.
