Performing Percussionist (Book 2)
Year of Published: 1974
Publisher: Barnhouse Company
The study of percussion instruments and technique continues in the same logical and musical manner introduced with book one. Students are encouraged to listen, think, and work on a consistent even sound. The “right hand lead system” continues to be reinforced while adding more instruments, rhythm studies and a unit on beginning drum set.
Other methods come and go, yet The Performing Percussionist remains the go-to book for teaching solid concepts and habits that will carry through the years. Invaluable for private study and perfect as a supplement to other band method books. An outstanding and must-have teaching tool!
