Snare Drum Duets
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."
Studies in Rhythm
Studies in Rhythm contains a variety of moderate to advanced level snare drum solos and corresponding duets. The duets are constructed from the main musical elements utilized in each solo, for example: KRUSH is a solo and KRUSH II is a duet, and each share similar musical elements. In addition, the studies in this collection can be played in a rudimental (with open or measured rolls) or orchestral style (closed or buzz rolls).
These solos and duets enable the performer(s) to demonstrate both drumming skills and musical knowledge. Simple, compound and mixed meters are all represented in this collection. These studies are intended to be both educational and fun, and in addition, a viable performance option for auditions, competitions, or recitals. [65 pages]
