Rudimental Short Stories
This collection of nine short pieces is written with the accomplished percussionist in mind, who is in search of challenging solos, short enough to fit in rehearsal breaks, tight practicing schedules or just a busy touring season. All pieces are written in traditional forms for easy memorization but also use a modern writing approach incorporating advanced rudiments and stickings. They can be played either just as a snare drum solo or with optional accompaniment. For performances, I would suggest putting together a suite with a minimum of three contrasting solos.
As percussionists, we are very fortunate to have plenty of opportunities to learn new instruments, techniques, and skills. This book concentrates on the magic of "morphing" - the skill of gradually altering one rudiment into another. This book is not only dedicated to all percussionists out there, but also to composers who are looking for new inspiration and techniques they can use to write for percussion instruments
