As the title suggest, Rhythm X is a percussive composition featuring a duet between the winds and the percussion section. Written at the grade .5 level, this quality composition will give you the opportunity to teach and reinforce elements of balance, independent musical lines, and dynamic construction not only between the percussion and the winds, but also between the individual voices of the percussion section. With the solid writing you have come to expect from David Shaffer, Rhythm X is perfect to introduce your young musicians to their first real band piece and let them show their stuff!
