Casella/Ancona-Up Front - Product Information

Up Front by Jim Casella and Jim Ancona explores the numerous details of a successful front ensemble. Topics included are: equipment, instrument ranges, transporting, instrument care, technique, exercises, teaching techniques, arranging, and much, much more. At a whopping 225 pages thick, this resource is sure to provide years of insight. It is meant to be an all-encompassing guide for pit members and educators of all experience levels.

Through the past twenty years or so, the "pit," or "front ensemble," has grown to be an integral part of the modern drum corps and marching band activities. This evolution has brought us into a new realm in the world of percussion education and performance, merging outdoor playing styles with indoor playing styles.


Jim Casella and Jim Ancona have instructed and arranged for some of drum corps' most musical and innovative percussion ensembles. Now they have combined their "pit knowledge" into one complete resource. UP FRONT explores every unique aspect of today's front ensemble, from technique and musicianship to arranging and instructing.

Great Resource!

Comments:

The perfect, comprehensive resource. It has been extremely helpful to me in developing exercises for my pit as well as information to help me better teach. Also great information about instrument care and proper moving/handling that I can easily give to the parents/pit crew. Great practice suggestions for students, and so much more. It doesn't miss anything! Every percussion instructor should own this. Perhaps the only improvment would be a better binding.
