Product Description

Contemporary Rhythm Drills Composed by David M Mruzek. For All Instruments. Published by Neil A Kjos Music Co. (Catalog # W50, UPC: 9780849706905)

Contemporary Rhythm Drills for Band and Orchestra is designed to help players and conductors master many of the asymmetrical and mixed meter patterns found in contemporary music. By developing an increased awareness of the eighth note pulse that underlies many rhythmic patterns, complex rhythms will soon become easier to sight-read, play, and conduct. This book is a 97-page collection of 369 rhythm drills that methodically addresses 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 8/8, and 9/8 meters. Major and minor (natural, harmonic, and melodic) scales and Dorian and Mixolydian modes are also included for all instruments and all keys to be used as note sets in combination with the rhythm drills. This versatile book can be used as a progressive method, or as a tool for practice of rhythmic cha llenges found in specific literature. Suggested for high school, college, and university bands and orchestras; also an ideal supplemental text for college conducting classes.
