Scoring for Percussion is a complete manual including availability, ranges, transpositions, techniques, beaters, and standardized notation. It provides a guide for arrangers scoring percussion parts for pieces in a variety of styles. This newly revised edition contains an enhanced CD-ROM that provides a comprehensive look at more than 85 percussion instruments, with images of the instruments, sound samples, and typical patterns associated with each instrument.

"Every serious student of composition/arranging/orchestration, not to mention percussionists themselves, would do well to thoroughly study and master the concepts presented in this text."
