This book is the recipient of the CELEBRATION of EXCELLENCE AWARD from the Connecticut State Dept of Education. A progressive course for both class and private instruction. Includes full page duets and multiple percussion etudes. Through the use of supplementary musical pieces integrated with each lesson, student interest is fostered, and musicality and ensemble playing is stressed, along with technical study.
“Let’s get right to the point: this is a superior drum book. Anyone engaged in the profession of teaching percussion, especially on the elementary level should give serious consideration to using LaRosa’s book as a foundational text.” MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE
