This is what the 5 Stroke Roll looks like in written music. R=right, L=left


  • The music for the roll is read:  RR LL R- LL RR L
  • Practise slowly at first, listening to the evenness of each note
  • Start to bounce the double strokes (RR,LL) as you increase speed- 2 notes for each wrist stroke
