Snare Drum Duets offers a selection of 25 challenging duets that range in difficulty from relatively simple to more complex. A wide assortment of time signatures is used throughout the book, from 2/4 and common time to 5/8, 7/8 and 12/8, among others. This method can be used in several different ways:
1. For those working with the book without the benefit of a second player, snare drum parts one and two can be practised as individual solos for improvement of basic reading skills.
2. Two players may use the book as writtem in duet format, remembering to alternate parts.
3. Finally, for those studying the material without a playing partner, the enclosed CD includes a separate recording of parts one and two of each duet, thus enabling the player to perform either part along with the other on the CD.
