Product Details


An ideal book for private lessons, small group instruction or percussion ensemble rehearsals, A Percussionist's Guide to Check Patterns focuses on mastering the essential basics of reading and controlling one-beat rhythmic patterns. It provides a systematic approach to sticking duple- and triplet-based rhythms that all beginning to advanced percussionists encounter in everyday music. All musical examples are written for non-pitched percussion, keyboards and drumset, and the step-by-step presentation is guaranteed to improve syncopation control and coordination.

"It is pleasing to listen to, well constructed, and the virtuosic aspects should be highly effective for the audience."
Jeff Moore, Percussive Notes
