Exercise Your Weak Hand

Most of us have a strong hand and a weak hand. In drumming, it's natural to favor your strong hand. When playing rudiments, stick control and other exercises, students sometimes skip over stickings and exercises that work the weak hand. The best drummers I know go out of their way to create workouts for their weak hand. Not only do they play the weak hand oriented exercises, but create new ones that concentrate on their weak hand. If you adopt a mindset that you will work at developing your weak hand, eventually your hands will be closer in strength and ability. And that can only help you in your drumming and music career.
