Drum Lesson. Mitchell Peters’ Elementary Snare Drum Studies.


Mitchell Peters wrote one of my favorite books. The section, “Measuring Roll Speed” is brilliant and as an instructor I cannot live without it. Rob Slack, master percussionist from the Pacific Symphony, had me work in this book. I have had students start to THINK after they have worked this section of the book. Students become aware of critical analysis of sticking, speed and sound. The etudes are beautiful and the notation is written the way we wish all music to look, and rarely does.
