Collection of exercises and etudes for development of performance technique and musicality on Brazilian shakers.

GANZÁ ". . . is a genuine methodology that invites students to learn the tradition, and to explore it further.  In the present publication, the first section is devoted to rhythmic control and accentuation through exercises that remind you of traditional rhythms from Brazil's northeast and southeast regions.  The second section focuses on dynamic control, timbre manipulation, coordination and short studies that require dexterity and more familiarity with the instrument.

Congratulations for one more addition to the series!"
