    Teaching Percussion, Third Edition

    Comments:

    This spiral-bound, 496-page percussion pedagogy textbook contains some new material in its third edition, including two DVDs that contain over seven hours of footage. The first DVD contains six basic topics, including general considerations and prerequisites; basic percussion technique through the study of the snare drum; keyboard percussion; timpani; and bass drum, cymbals and accessories. The second DVD contains percussion instruments of the world; drumset; and marching percussion. A primary addition to the Cook Book is a superb segment on the DVD of how to teach marching percussion drumlines. Also, there is more emphasis on global and electronic percussion. New contributors to Teaching Percussion include Robin Horn on drumset, Mike Vercelli and Todd Hammes on world percussion, Scott Deal on electronic percussion, and Joe Gallegos with Jeff Moore on marching percussion. This third edition of Teaching Percussion will not become out-of-date for many years to come.
