Elements is a way of connecting your thoughts with Technique. So I take the student through around 25 ways on each of the Elements. The 2nd example on the sheet that is posted here is playing low stroke 16th notes and then accenting each element as a full stroke. Once this feels locked in then move it onto the drums and start to voice the accents around the kit.
There is many ways of doing all these exercises. I hope with this small explaination it will help you to get started...
