Rebound Strokes

Rebound Strokes

Rebound Strokes for wrist development are outlined in this video lesson.  Much of drumming consists of playing from the wrist while using the natural rebound from the drum.  The key component here is to follow the stick with your wrist as it rebounds off the drum.  Therefore, having relaxed wrists and grip are very important for this exercise to be effective. The drum can be thought of as a trampoline and so when you strike it the stick will automatically come back off the drum.  Drummers use this natural rebound, much like a ball bouncing on the floor, by harnessing this natural energy to play in a relaxed manner.
