Hailing from the western heartland of Casper, Wyoming, The Troopers have been known as "America's Corps" since they were founded in 1957. Today, they honor their traditional heritage while embracing the American spirit of innovation through cutting-edge design and precision that is cutlass sharp. Inside TROOPERCUSSION, you'll get a peek at how the Troopers percussion program defines their technical and musical approach, strengthening their roots, while creating a fresh approach to the world of marching percussion in the 21st century. Weighing in at 90 pages, the book is packed to the hilt with content, and not just for audition candidates. Percussionists and drum corps fans of all levels will find useful tips and innovative musical examples throughout the extensive and fully orchestrated exercises and etudes for both the battery and front ensemble sections. Eight full battery exercises, keyboard chop builders, technique tips, pictures, four specialized front ensemble etudes (called the TrooPit etudes), and five full percussion musical show excerpts give a glimpse into the minds (and ears) of the two of the activity's talented up-and-comers, David Reeves and Kevin Welborn. Together they are spearheading a bold new path for a classic organization, and now with TROOPERCUSSION the secret's out!
