This rotational percussion method for snare drum, keyboard percussion, timpani, traps, world percussion, and drum set, created by band director and percussion specialist Chris Colaneri is gleaned from interviews, research, and two decades of directing middle school band and percussion. It is designed to help fourth grade through high school students develop the skills for participation in the next level of musical study or extracurricular performing ensembles. Included is a curriculum guide and practice assignment sheets for all grades, practice tips, and exercises for snare, mallet, drum set, and timpani. Recordings, practice tracks, and videos are available on the book’s companion website.
