Rudiment Tap

TwoDesk Software Company
Learn and play Snare Drum Rudiments on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Every percussionist should know the 40 standard drum rudiments. Rudiment Tap trains you to play 39 of them, plus variations (we left out multiple-bounce rolls, because they just don't play well on a touch screen):

1. Choose the rudiment you want to work on

2. Learn the sticking pattern by playing the rudiment slowly on your touch screen with your fingers. Rudiment Tap tells you when you've played the rudiment correctly, or when you've made a sticking error.

3. Work on your rhythmic accuracy by playing along with the built-in metronome. Rudiment Tap checks your sticking AND rhythm for accuracy, and gives you a grade for how well you played the rudiment.

Test your memorization of rudiments by name: Hide the music (in the Rudiment Tap options screen) and see how many you can play correctly with no music.

Once you've mastered all the rudiments in Rudiment Tap, go back and perfect them all starting with the left hand too!
