|Stick Control Exercises|
|By Darrell Grey
|Two exercises that will help improve your stick control are Bridgeman and the Paradiddle Pyramid. You will learn these exercises on a snare drum but once you feel comfortable with them you will be able to substitute these patterns from the snare onto other drums and cymbals. A few other exercises that will add to your fills and drum techniques are the double stroke roll exercises.|
The Bridgeman exercise is a good way to improve accent control for right and left hands. It is important to try and only use your wrist when performing this exercise. This will also help improve your stick control.

The double stroke roll exercises will help you develop your fills as well as add to your drum solos.
