In Modern Etudes and Studies for the Total Percussionist, band director and percussionist Chris Colaneri lays out a comprehensive system of total percussion education. The lessons are gleaned from interviews, research, and the nearly two decades he has spent directing middle school band and percussion ensembles. This expanded second edition meets needs of fourth grade through high school percussion students, helping them develop necessary skills for future participation in their next level of musical study or extracurricular performing ensembles. Developed with the practical needs of percussion teachers in mind, Modern Etudes has been extensively classroom tested and provides key teaching aids that will be welcomed by every band director. These include a curriculum guide and practice assignment sheets for all grades; practice tips; and exercises and etudes for snare, mallet, set, and timpani. Recordings, practice tracks, and videos are available on the book's companion website.
