Up Front Etudes....

Jim, Jim and Company - I just want to compliment you on ";Up Front Etudes";. What a great resource for the front ensemble. I highly recommend the book as a compliment to ";Up Front";. Any percussion instructor or band director would be foolish not to have both in their library. Bravo!

In a world dominated by ";flam-drag fighter pilots"; it is great to have the front ensemble resources for students to become ";keyboard-chromatic-run super jockeys";. Your resources empower the battery kids AND the front ensemble. Thanks again.

I agree. I have been in many front ensemble on many levels whether it be PIW in WGI or High school. I plan on using this book to teach technique but also balance and musicality with the high schools I instruct. I believe that this will be much more beneficial than just learning exercises because it is more engaging and covers musical concepts tha just exercises can not.
