With very few studies existing for the Snare Drum, Vingt-Huit Miniatures Études Préparatoires fills a very large gap. Covering many aspects including complex rhythms and ornamentation, these studies are essential for percussionists.
Vingt-Huit Miniatures Études Préparatoires is compiled by two established and highly accredited musicians. F. Dupin, frequent soloist with the Orchestra de Paris and professor at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon, has had a long partnership with M. Jorand, ex-soloist with l'Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and professor at the Conservatoire National de Région de Montpellier. As percussionists themselves, and with much invaluable experience between them, Vingt-Huit Miniatures Études Préparatoires for Snare Drum is well-informed and essential to aspiring percussion players.
