Practice all rudiments on your smartphone
With the Rudiment app you always have all 40 snare drum rudiments in your pocket, allowing you to practice them and bring them to perfection. The app features a playback mode to play the rudiments and has a built-in metronome with which you can learn to control and improve your timing from 40 to 200 bpm.
Rudiment, the new utility by rhythmtoolsfactory offers you:
- all 40 essential rudiments from The Percussive Arts Society's Essential Snare Drum Rudiments
- stepless adjustment of beats-per-minute
- full playback mode - let the phone play the drums
- pattern switching through shaking or flinging
* Show notation of all 40 official rudiments, with name and order according to PAS.
* Visually indicate where you are in the pattern, synchronized with the built-in metronome.
* Keep the tempo using the most accurate metronome engine available on Android.
* Allow tempo adjustments between 20 and 240 BPM.
* Navigate quickly and intuitively between rudiments and tempos, with support for most input methods (including media buttons, remote controls and screen swipes).
* Link to textual descriptions and instructional videos showing all the patterns individually, on pad and examples applied to drum set. Professional performances with a single click. (The videos and examples are published at rude.skrivarna.com.)
What it doesn't do:
* It does not attempt to play the rudiments with the built-in midi sounds. No offense, but in this case your phone sucks.
If you want the play-along feature, please check out the Rude Practice Pad app. Rather than trying to program a midi sequence to faithfully reproduce a buzz roll or flam, the new sound engine uses real sampled drum sounds. The Rude Practice Pad also contain 100 hybrid rudiments, exercises, social sharing etc.
I really appreciate comments on how this small app behaves, looks and performs on different Android versions and hardware models. If you mail me at software (at) skrivarna.com I can get back with updated versions or questions and answers if needed.
Of course, any suggestions on additional features, improvements and corrections of the actual contents are very welcome. Use the software (at) skrivarna.com mail for this as well. This is also true for the examples at rude.skrivarna.com, please send me a mail with any comments.
And yes, I am aware that some of the rudiments, official or not, have different possible interpretations in how they are played and notated. In most cases I have used the most common form (as far as I understand), but there is also a trade-off in making the notation viewable on a small screen and making the underlying code somewhat maintainable. If you have a strong opinion on this and think I have made the wrong choice, don't hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to be as correct as possible.
A must have for every musician with a mobile phone or a tablet!

On smaller devices set the number of beats per bar and how you’d like the beat subdivided on the Settings screen. When you start the metronome it switches to the Practice screen, with its useful beat indicators. The practice screen has controls for easily increasing and decreasing the tempo in small increments, so you can start slow and build up your speed with one touch of the screen. On larger devices all of these features can be reached on one handy screen using the new Tablet layout.
- Separate layout for larger devices
- Select any tempo from 1 to 300 beats per minute.
- Don’t know how many beats per minute you need? Then use the tap tempo button to select a tempo.
- Displays Italian tempo markings – handy if you’re not sure how fast Vivace should be.
- Subdivide the beat with up to 16 clicks per beat – so you can practice the timing of your triplets.
- Choose whether to accent the first beat of the bar.
- Visual beat indication - mute the sound and use the visualisations to follow the beat.
- The metronome automatically stops playing when there is an incoming call.
- Your settings are saved automatically on exit – so you can carry on where you left off next time you play.
- Change the pitch of the sound to make the metronome easier to hear over your instrument.
Check out Metronome Beats Pro for even more features, including a “live” mode where you can create and play set lists.
Metronome Beats is supported by adverts, which is why it requires the “INTERNET” and “ACCESS NETWORK STATE” permissions.

The free version is packed with features like the newly designed time signature interface – customized it any way you want. 13 time-keeping styles let you choose beat sounds that work for you – even a counting voice.. With RTP (Real-Time Playback) technology, it's more precise than a traditional mechanical metronome.
Pro Metronome is all about customization – change beat sounds, accents, and even choose from 4 different beat volume levels ("f", "mf", "p" and "mute.") With the Pro Version, access subdivisions, polyrhythm settings, and create complex patterns with triplets, dotted notes, and non-standard time signatures.
The app supports several ways to experience beats. All versions have sound, but upgrading to Pro enables Visual, Flash and Vibrate. Visual and Vibrate Modes are great when you're playing loud instruments or when you need to FEEL the beat. Flash Mode uses the device's camera flash to help your whole band sync up easily.
But Pro Metronome doesn't just help you keep time, it also helps you train. Many musicians, especially drummers, are looking for some way to help themselves keep a steadier beat. So Pro Metronome built the Rhythm Trainer - it plays one bar of beats, then mutes the next, letting you check how steady your timing really is. Increase mute time as you get better and soon you'll be closer to having perfect timing. It's a simple idea not found in any other app, one that lots of people have requested to increase their stamina and precision.
Pro Metronome supports many other features: polyrhythm mode to help drummers hear and visualize complex, interlocking beat patterns; background play mode; in-app volume adjust; even saving playlists that you can share with friends, no matter which system they are using(Android/iOS). It's a powerful, elegant app that is easy for anyone to get started with, and useful for any musician. So pick it up and sync to your own beat today!
We know that Pro Metronome for Android is far from perfect right now. However, we'll keep improving it in the next update and finally provide the same experiences as on iOS devices.

The Skills & Fills video drum app deals with the same system that is used in the drum book (see: www.skillsandfills.com). Over 60 linear drum fills (others than in the book) are explained from scratch and demonstrated in different tempos! The drum app is characterized by “less talking, more drumming”.
You will be able to play along by using your phone or tablet with a headphone for a nice sound.
The system concists of four elements:
The "Fill Generator" enables you to create countless nice sounding combinations.
Drummers who are looking for more variation in the way they play drum fills will get lots of inspiration and ideas out of this system!
This drum app can be useful for any drummer, from amateur to pro! If you are looking for practical drum video lessons in your play store, this is the one you're looking for.
The Skills & Fills E-book will soon be available in the Play store!
The book contains the whole system, with more than 80 audio examples (others than in the app)!
Dennis Tideman (born in Delft, The Netherlands on the 19th of July 1965) began playing drums as a child and received his first full drum kit from his parents at the age of eleven.
Dennis has owned a drum school (Drumschool DT in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands) for almost 20 years now and has played in several Dutch funk and rock bands throughout the years.
His passion for the instrument and years of teaching drum lessons experience has inspired him to write a method that is accessible for a large group of drummers. "Playing drum fills has always bin a popular item between my students, so I tried to develop a system that combines rudimental exercises with practical applications to the drum kit". "It became a great succes"!
In the year 2014 Dennis came up with the idea of developing a drum app with drum video lessons based on the book. He recorded 60 linear drum fills and created an application that is very comprehensive and entertaining for every drummer from amateur to pro.
