10 Beginning Percussion Ensembles
After nearly two years in the making, here is a groundbreaking new resource for band directors and percussion teachers with younger percussion students. Beyond Basic Percussion is written by Eric Rath and Ralph Hicks, both of whom are accomplished band directors AND professional percussionists. It's designed to be both practical and entertaining, training students to be musically independent while also having fun!
It includes ten easy/med-easy percussion ensemble pieces (6 to 10 players) along with text and diagrams outlining practical information about playing considerations, ensemble setup, trap table usage, multipercussion setups, dampening, implement suggestions, and several other focus considerations. Also, this compilation includes a DVD packed with multicamera student performances, individual parts, separate audio files, technique playing examples, and student assignment charts.
