Our Perspective

Portraits in Rhythm is an incredibly useful book for advancing percussionists at the high school and college level.  It allows the percussionist to focus on musicality - interpreting phrasing, dynamics and musical form.  Portraits in Rhythm canprovide a great musical foundation for playing in any musical ensemble.   Since the 1960s, Portraits has been a standard book for percussionists and can now be experienced through the Portraits in Rhythm: Complete Study Guide version and video master classes available on Anthonyjcirone.com. - Connor
