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").
The entire Learning Sequence is now available in PDF format!
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.
