Today's percussionists face diverse musical challenges. As quirky as they can sometimes be, we need to develop a strong command of odd time signatures. Odd Duck is a charming piece written to introduce young players to the idea of odd meters, in this case 5/8, and how they can be broken down into groupings of 2 and 3. Odd Duck is playful and light, and doesn't get too heavy, allowing players to focus on becoming comfortable with the rhythms. Once this settles in for all members of the quartet, the ultimate goal is to establish and maintain a natural flow to the performance, assuring that our duck will be odd but not clumsy! This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
