“Rhythmology for Snare Drum” is a collection of solos, duets, trios, and a quartet composed for the beginning to intermediate percussionist. Being band directors ourselves, we understand the needs of both developing percussionists and the band directors who try to find suitable music for those students. The pieces come from writing for our own middle school students, and most of the pieces have been performed by those students at Solo & Ensemble festivals over the past few years.
“Rhythmology” contains 8 solos, 6 duets, 3 trios and a quartet (some with added multi-percussion) to inspire and challenge the percussionists in your program. The pieces contain elements of both concert and rudimental snare drumming, and they can be used as a supplement with the “Toolbox” series (available from Row-Loff) or with other band method books.
