Periscope Lesson Session #5: Double Stroke Rolls

The Double Stroke Roll – Percussive Arts Society (PAS) Rudiment #6 – is an essential tool in every drummer’s tool box.  Not only is it idiomatic to the tradition of rudimental drumming, it allows us to express “sustain” and “texture” in a variety of musical contexts.  It’s also the foundation of so many of the other PAS Standard 40 Rudiments.

ATTENTION ALL PERCUSSIONISTS!  In celebration of the 5th Periscope Lesson Session, I’m issuing a #Huei5for5 Periscope Challenge. Between now and next Sunday, the challenge is to Periscope broadcast yourself practicing for 5mins for 5 days in a row.  Dedicate each day to one of the lesson topics, referring to the handouts and video lessons found at Participants will not be penalized for practicing more than 5 minutes 🙂

If we’re not following each other on Periscope before you start, be sure to let me know so I receive your alerts.  You can also tweet me with #Huei5for5 @hueiyuanpan so I can catch your scopes (or at least the replays).

The winner will receive a free 30min Skype lesson and be featured on a #HueiScope.  Share and encourage your friends to participate and keep helping us build the percussion community – good luck!


I’ve seen a few other GoPro broadcasts, but I think last week’s lesson may be the first instance of a Multi-camera Video Lesson on Periscope. Until I hear otherwise, I’m claiming the First GoPro drum lesson on Periscope 🙂

The idea is to give you an up-close perspective that you might have in a lesson, as well as a view from my perspective. As my friend Alan points out, this is something I wouldn’t be able to achieve even in a masterclass setting, considering students sitting in the last row.

Watch the live lesson on March 20, 2016 at 7pm cst or catch the video replay below (coming soon).  For future lessons on Periscope, follow @hueiyuanpan or view on your browser at
