Snare drum etude in 2/4 with 8th notes and triplets - 01

I've been interested in modulating rhythms lately, so here's a little snare drum etude derived from my previous etude in 5/8. It's actually the same piece— I've just changed the meter to 2/4, and changed the rhythm to 8th notes and triplets.

It's a good idea to set your click to quarter notes to do the rhythm accurately; with it changing so rapidly it's easy to run the note values into each other, especially as the accents and ornamentation get more obscure. The suggested sticking is alternating all the way through; the stickings indicated on the page is just to assist with that.
