Snare Drum Duets is a collection of graded (three levels) duets for two snare drums designed to be a training tool for young drum players. Compared to playing solos alone, performing a duet with another performer teaches balance, precision and concentration skills, which are required for any kind of ensemble playing from rock and jazz to orchestral situations. The book comes with a CD of the duet performance, as well as additional performance tracks for Part 1 and Part 2, for play-along purposes. Students of these duets will learn precision use of both stick on the drum in unison, balance between performers, control of matched dynamics, accents, stick bounces and much more.
