Douze Études is essential for every snare drum library. It is a rite of passage for orchestral snare drummers. The studies are all designed to be extremely challenging. Extreme attention to detail is needed to recreate all the details Delécluse has written into these pieces. The little nuances, tempi, dynamics, etc. are all specifically defined – and defined in such a way that makes them as difficult as possible to execute! This book is so essential for snare drummer to learn, that it is one of the few pieces that show up on orchestral auditions even though it is not an orchestral excerpt.

Douze Études has become a standard in the concert repertoire, and for good reason. One of the main focuses of the etudes is the mastery of the roll, and they are deliberately written to expose weaknesses in technical ability and rhythmic understanding. However, the etudes are not simply beneficial technical exercises, they are also well formed, musical compositions which are fit for the concert hall.

These etudes are great. Not too hard and fun to sight read. Good audition pieces.
