Hand Drumming Essentials
The Instruments, Techniques and Compositions for Ensemble Performance
By Cheryl Grosso
Book and CD
Middle School and up
All the information you need to begin and maintain your own hand drumming ensemble! Includes an introduction to instruments of the hand drumming ensemble and exotic world percussion instruments, performance and rehearsal techniques, and the development of drumming techniques and compositions for performance.
The book offers 7 ready-to-play original compositions (Rhythm Chants) at a variety of levels, comprehensive instructional materials (with instructions for the non-percussionist educator), and extensive cross-curricular and multicultural applications. Meets and exceeds the U.S. National Standards for Rhythmic Improvisation.
The CD gives the player the opportunity to hear examples of the different instruments and techniques presented in the book. The player can listen to different types of tones, strokes and rhythms associated with each instrument and also play along at a practice tempo-but then can test oneself at the performance tempo.
