Eights, accents, double beat, triplet diddle, flams, and a hybrid exercise.

If you want, you can drop me a line on AIM and I can talk with you more about it.

i'd say a 16th not roll exercise, and a timing exercise as well. . .

My take on it is have an a r s e n a l (why is that beeped out?) of exercises based on their ability to begin with, which can range from exercises for diddles, paradiddles, rolls, timing, stick control, flams, legatos (8s), double beat, triple beat, accent taps, etc. etc. but then condense those exercises down to 3-4 warm ups. Not every high school has time to run through hundred exercises just before the show/pre-game/parade with the exception of competitions, so really I condense the 3-4 warmups to be the ones that warm everyone up the most in the different type of motions. 8s, accent tap, double beat/triple beat, rolls would be good ones to do. Of course it's up to you how you warm up and what you warm up with based on how you write.

I'm all about longer excercises that span at least 32 bars, as opposed to 4 bar excercises that you loop. Longer excercises emulate a show environment and neccesitate the same type of focus.

also good advice, I wouldn't go far as to say 1283091 bars like SCV can be some times but I adopt that philosophy as well.

SCV's basic eights excercise from the audition packet spanned a heaping four sheets.

I say keep it simple, but make them think. I just started as section leader, and the first thing I did differently was eights. We played eights normally for a bit, but then I had them play different numbers on each hand. For example, 8-8-7-7-8-8-7-7, and then 8-8-7-7-6-6-5-5...Just anything different to keep them focusing.

I also introduced them to the short/long style double beat...which they dubbed the "shlong version." That was another thing that made them be more conscious of the beat, since the long parts are more syncopated than they like.

So, I say if you're writing exercises, keep them simple, but make it something that will make them think, or keep their interest (i.e. something that has a cool groove) Of course keep doing stock stuff, but don't limit yourself to just those.

That's just the way I do things, of course.

I like to put many techniques into one exercise.
For example I like to put a legato warmup in the beginning of my double beat exercise or legatos with acc taps.
