Hicks/Rath-Five Minute Drill (CD) - Product Information

Ever wonder what to do with the bored percussionists in your classroom while you're working fundamentals with the wind players?

Five Minute Drill by Ralph Hicks and Eric Rath is your answer! Written by band directors, this unique book+CD play-along package is geared for band directors as well as students—both in AND out of the classroom. It's loaded with the essential percussion exercises young students need in order to build lasting foundations with their rudiments, stickings, dynamics, major scales, and chromatic scales.

Shorter breakdown exercises build up to form full sequences that take about five minutes a day. While your wind players are working long tones and lip slurs at the beginning of class, your percussion students can set up their practice pads or keyboards, pick an exercise, hit play on an MP3 player, and away they go! They'll be readier than ever when it's time to get into the music.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains nearly 100 entertaining audio tracks at a variety of tempos that will motivate students to listen and play along with as they practice at home or play in the classroom. The practice pad play-along tracks are custom-tailored to fit the technique being addressed, and the major scale keyboard tracks are presented in 3 fun, tempo-based styles—disco, samba, and DJ FMD! Also included on the CD are printable data tracking tools so teachers and students can track and follow their daily/weekly progress both in AND out of the classroom
