Complementary Percussion

A handbook for developing tambourine, triangle, cymbals, and bass drum performance

By Keith Aleo

$20

Complementary Percussion: A workbook for developing Tambourine, Triangle, Cymbals and Bass Drum Performance, provides the percussionist with exercises, etudes and duets specifically written for these instruments. The exercises are the "stick control" for this group of instruments and provide the necessary foundation to begin addressing the etudes. The etudes are idiomatic, musically satisfying, and simply "make sense" from a percussionist's standpoint. They vary in skill and serve as a launching point to master these instruments. Having perfected the exercises and mastered all of the etudes, a percussionist will be prepared to tackle any part for tambourine, triangle, bass drum and cymbals.

"Keith Aleo has filled a void in the field of orchestral percussion with his collection of etudes. They are clever, musically written, and address real challenges and impracticalities associated with these instruments. They are a valuable resource for all levels of experience."
Dan Bauch, Boston Symphony Orchestra
