How fast can you play a Single Paradiddle?
This week I have been encouraging my students to play a single paradiddle consecutively for three days then report back with their P.B. (personal best).
Each student was asked to start their paradiddle at 60 b.p.m. (beats per minute).
There will be a prize for the best verified (of course, I'll have to check out the speed at their next lesson) tempo (speed marking) for each school year level.
Already, most of my high school students can play a single paradiddle faster than 80 b.p.m. so I am expecting tempos higher than 80 if they are in high school.
How fast (and evenly) can you play your single paradiddle? There are small prizes for the winners in each school year level.
Post your score below. Choose "anonymous" for your ID but please say who you are. Example "It's Ruby - my P.B. is 90 b.p.m."
I look forward to reading your comments,
