Welcome to Drum Rudiment world! There are 40 of The Percussive Arts Society's Essential Snare Drum Rudiments, and audio play-along files.

The National Association of Rudimental Drummers, an organization established to promote rudimental drumming, put forward a list of 13 essential rudiments, and later a second set of 13 to form the original 26. The Percussive Arts Society reorganized the first 26 and added another 14 to form the current 40 International Drum Rudiments

Drum Rudiments are one of the most important aspects of drumming. They are the building blocks to every drum beat, pattern, fill, and solo. Whatever your skill level is on the drums, practicing your rudiments is a must. Even if you are an advanced drummer, it’s always good to go over some of the more technical rudiments.

To get started, grab your sticks and a practice pad and select a rudiment from one of the rudimental families!

Essential for snare drummers

I'm a former DCI Blue Devil and this really helped maintain quality in different rolls and provided exercises to smooth out commonly used music structures and sticks (Flams/Paradiddles etc)


Font is too small. Can't even read it. Notation is tiny...even when I click on it to enlarge it. I don't get the point of all the bronze, silver, gold, etc. stuff. Definitely not worth paying for.

Didn't like it.

Wanted the essential rudiments written out to run through when needed. Everything is very small, and the actual bars of music are tiny and not useful. Can't do much with it.
