Featuring 40 essential lessons; this method book by performer/educators Ben Hans and John S. Pratt is ideal for classroom use and for private instruction. Hal Leonard School for Snare Drum is designed to develop a drummer's rhythmic vocabulary and musical artistry. It starts with the very basics – such as parts of the snare and types of snares – presenting music fundamentals to beginners in a non-intimidating way. Also ideal for more experienced snare drummers; the book is loaded with helpful meter; roll and rudiment studies; progressing from quarter notes and 2/4 time to 17-stroke rolls and cut-time. It delves deep into concert snare drumming; and teaches students applications of alternate and natural sticking. The book also contains John Philip Sousa march charts; etudes and duets written by Ben Hans; and brand new rudimental solos by legendary percussion composer John S. Pratt that are perfect for contests and juried performances. Edited by Rick Mattingly; this pedagogically sound book presents the rudimental tradition; as well as its many modern-day applications.
