Programme Notes / Performance Details :This method book also a very descriptive percussion history book was written by James Blades, Professor of Timpani and Percussion at The Royal Academy of Music, in London. To explain the greatness of the book would take a lifetime, but to sum up the best features would have to be the in depth of the history of drums from different parts of the world including Africa, China, and Japan. Great illustrations of the instruments they used and what instruments are used to today that derived from them. Also this book shows techniques for timpani, bass drum, snare drum, sleigh bells, cow bells, and many more, explaining the detailed description of how to play, what type of sound their supposed to bring to the ensemble. Also, composers who used these modern percussion instruments in their pieces for ensembles. This book would be great for any percussion teacher, instructor, or enthusiast to have in their own personal library of percussion books.
