I'm trying out for high school drum line (snare) later this year (which is a pretty big deal where I live) and I really want to get ahead of the game by learning stuff now because the auditions not until April-May-ish. What rudiments/other drum things should I start learning to pass with flying colors so to speak?

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Paradiddles, Single stroke rolls, multiple bounce rolls, drags, and rimshots would greatly improve your chances. Practicing with a metronome is also good advice. Also, it doesn't hurt to youtube some videos, once you get the basic idea of those basic rudiments down, and try looking up lessons, or little snare solos, and practice trying to play them.

Also, check out a couple of exercises called "Magic Number" and "Pyramid". They'll help with your counting. Make sure when working on snare parts, you don't suffer from "Rock Drummer arm". Marching guys should know what I'm talking about...

RIGHT left RIGHT left RIGHT left...

And pay attention to your left hand especially with your stroke technique. That hand goes DERP a lot when you're used to a kit.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Learn these - and I mean all of them. Be able to play them leading with both of your hands.

Learn these and you will make snare.

Rock Drummer Arm is when you rely completely on your right arm for everything. You should be codependent.

The username. Who wants to be known as the poop kid? That's like the kid that poops in the urinal at school and everybody finds out about it.

I thought codependency was just a given. Whatever works for them. It's not like rudiments are a huge focus in rock drumming.

Thanks, I most definitely suffer from RDA since I've always played right hand lead.
