15 Easy to Medium Sequential Duets for the Developing Snare Drummer
by Chelsea Tinsler Jones
Instrumentation: snare drum
Chelsea Tinsler Jones’ book Level Up! is a collection of 15 snare drum pieces that provide fun and engaging musical experiences which reinforce specific snare drumming skills in beginning and intermediate players.
The pieces in this collection progressively graduate or “level up” to encourage students to strive for new plateaus. Players can perform these pieces as solos (with audio accompaniment), with a friend, or with their teacher to encourage the ensemble listening skills required in chamber music settings.
Included with each solo is three play-along reference tracks:
1) Snare drum 1 - play-along with snare drum 2
2) Snare drum 2 - play-along with snare drum 1
3) Duet reference - listen to SD 1 & SD 2 together
Level Up! ships as a fully-bound book with a sleek color cover design and includes the practice audio accompaniment tracks and a second player score in downloadable format.
