Designed as a core text for college level courses in percussion methods and pedagogy, Teaching Percussion is a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to teaching methodology and performance techniques. Now updated, Teaching Percussion helps students and performers develop musical understanding and performance skills on some fifty percussion instruments. The Second Edition includes coverage of new developments in world music instruments and performance. In addition, Norman Weinberg, cofounder of the PAS World Percussion Network, has contributed a discussion of electronic percussion and new technology. The outstanding exercises, musical examples, photographs, illustrations, practical advice, and bibliographies - popular features in the first edition - have been retained and enhanced. Teaching Percussion, Second Edition, is an invaluable resource for students, faculty, and performers alike.
