Progressive Method for Snare Drum

Contents include basic music terminology, discussions of legato, syncopation, musical expressions, compound metric organization - as well as many technique exercises for the development of rolls, flams, and accent patterns. Numerous etudes follow the introduction of each new concept. The book culminates with ten challenging solos that make use of the many musical parameters covered throughout the book. Text in English and Italian [115 pages].
Collection of 25 easy to intermediate level duets.
"For teachers and students alike, these snare drum duets liven up the learning process with a variety of musical elements: form, rhythm, dynamics, etc. What makes them fascinating and fun are the dialogues that emerge while playing them.
The duets are ideal for students who already know basic music reading and playing techniques. The pieces get more difficult as the book progresses with new elements being introduced, such as different metres, grace notes, rolls, etc. Some are complete with dynamics. Others leave room for the players' own dynamic expression.
The most important aspect, however, is the 'conversation' that develops between the players during these pieces. Listen for it, and above all, listen to what the other player is 'saying.'
Several duets are fine concert pieces while others are great
for training specific techniques. This combination
enriches the experience of learning to play the snare drum."
Snare Time: Ten Solos for Snare Drum
A diverse collection, great for contests or recitals! Each solo makes use of a different set of technical challenges. Includes performance notes for each piece in German and English. adv. high school/college.
"The pieces I am presenting here originate from my work with snare drum rudiments and snare techniques, which I found especially exciting. My intention was not just to put together some complicated figures, but rather to get a musical idea going that is developed, varied or contrasted in the course of each piece. The result is music of great intensity. Working on these pieces is easiest and the most fun with well developed technique. This means having a thorough understanding of the rudiments, and the ability to play dynamically. With that in mind, this collection can motivate you to try out what you can do already, improve on the weak spots, and, last but not least, be creative yourself!" . . . Denis Stilke
