Program Notes

The Book of Percussion Audition Music for the 21st Century is designed for multiple purposes. The book is ideal for evaluating local, regional, and all-state percussion auditions. High-caliber musical examples also serve as material for tracking student progress. Use this book in tandem with recommended supplementary material to develop percussionists’ skills for today’s challenging musical world. Since demonstrating above-average performance skills on all basic percussion instruments is important for young players, the authors developed an ideal audition scenario illustrated in the Evaluation Form. The audition scenario requires skills on basic percussion instruments while allowing for specialization. Use this unique book to enhance the type of musical intelligence expected from today’s percussionist. The Electronic Accompaniments are intended as a musical aid for learning the solos. The accompaniments are designed to enhance players’ musical development by placing the solos in a broader musical context.
