I am providing these percussion exercises free of charge to be used for educational purposes. I do not claim to be the sole author of any of theses percussion exercises (although I am the sole arranger of the Christmas songs), as they are mostly percussion exercises that have been passed down to me. I hope that you will enjoy these percussion exercises and distribute them to other percussion students and percussion teachers that may find them useful. Please check back from time to time as I will occasionally add new ones.

These free percussion exercises are in PDF format, so you will need the free Adobe Reader to view and print them. You can download Adobe Reader at http://get.adobe.com/reader.

If you find these percussion exercises useful, please consider making a donation to cover the costs of running this site ($5-10 suggested, any amount appreciated).
