Snare Drum

Program Notes

This is a collection of nine concert-style solos that explore sixteenth notes, sixteenth-note triplet figures and accentuations. These expressive solos cover a variety of meters and moods, and are filled with dynamic contrasts as well as interesting rhythmic material. Each of the solos has a baseball title ("High & Outside," "4 for 4," "Triple," "RBI's," "Walk," etc.), which form a nine-inning game when performed in sequence. The solos cover standard snare drum techniques including single strokes, flams, drags and rolls. The solos are worthy of contests, college recitals or juries. - George Frock[1]
