Difficulty: Intermediate to Advanced
Dismissing the word "accessory", Keith Aleo's Complementary Percussion is a method book focusing on the instruments that concert percussionists tend to ignore: tambourine, triangle, cymbals and bass drum.
Keith Aleo has written a series of exercises, etudes, and duets for these instruments to help students understand and overcome the technical problems inherent in each. Everything is musical and 'learning-friendly' from a percussionist's point of view.
