In percussion music, a rudiment is one of the basic patterns used in rudimental drumming. These patterns of drum strokes can be combined in many ways to create music. The drum rudiments are the building blocks for all drum beats and drum fills. Learning how to play all 40 drum rudiments will open your drumming up to huge growth as well as beat and fill possibilities that you never imagined. Learning and applying the drum rudiments to your drumming is one of the most important aspects of playing the drums. Yet learning the drum rudiments is one of the most over-looked drumming principles.
The origin of snare rudiments can be traced back to Swiss mercenaries armed with long polearms. The use of pikes in close formation required a great deal of coordination. The sound of the tabor was used to set the tempo and communicate commands with distinct drumming patterns. These drumming patterns became the basis of the snare drum rudiments.
The first written rudiment goes back to the year 1612 in Basel, Switzerland. The cradle of rudimental drumming is said to be France, where professional drummers became part of the King's honour guard in the 17th and 18th centuries. The craft was perfected during the reign of Napoleon I. Le Rigodon is one of the cornerstones of modern rudimental drumming.
There have been many attempts to formalize a standard list of snare drum rudiments. The National Association of Rudimental Drummers, an organization established to promote rudimental drumming, put forward a list of 13 essential rudiments, and later a second set of 13 to form the original 26. The Percussive Arts Society reorganized the first 26 and added another 14 to form the current 40 International Drum Rudiments. Currently, the International Association of Traditional Drummers is working to once again promote the original 26 rudiments.
Today there are four main Rudimental Drumming cultures: Swiss Basler Trommeln, Scottish Pipe Drumming, American Ancient Drumming, and American Modern Drumming.

Not so good
This app has great potential. The navigation is horrible however. Getting to the video lessons is unclear. If you hit the wrong button you are stuck in a "loading cycle loop" and you think you can get the videos from here but you can't. This needs to be fixed as it shouldn't even navigate to this screen?? Also, there is no back button on the metronome page so you have to quit the app to navigate back to the apps functions if you take a wrong turn which is easy to do. Graphics are sadly non proportional and the drumset is hopelessly delayed in it's response. A nice photo of a drumset would be a bit more professional looking. If the rudiments and metronome existed on their own and the other stuff was dumped and the videos were easier to get to then this would be one of my favorite apps.
The videos themselves are great. Needs to be trimmed down and graphics need to be worked on.
Good for beginner
I worked on this app with my grandson who is learning drums. /very successful!
A nice have app for the beginners
