Announcing BROAD STROKES snare solo collection

We are absolutely thrilled to announce Broad Strokes, by Rick Dior, a collection of snare solos for the experienced player created by a true musical chameleon.

This 140-page book consists of 31 cleverly-written solos designed specifically to explore the contrasts between orchestral and rudimental playing styles as well as “combination” solos that combine the two approaches in real-world musical scenarios. Lastly, a section of “specialty” solos goes a step further by focusing on specific musical genres and unusual techniques or effects common in drum set performance.

Solos are accompanied by in-depth introductions and exercises to help the player study and prepare. A CD-ROM is included containing audio performances (both with and without a click track) by Dior himself.

Today’s percussionists face a wide variety of musical challenges. Broad Strokes represents a well-rounded approach to developing the dexterity and technique needed to be a truly versatile player.

"the Tapspace percussion ensembles offer the opportunity to play music at all levels for all percussionists. The quality of the writing is some of the best I have seen in my 25 years of teaching. It challenges every player in the ensemble from the triangle to the marimba. It challenges each player to perform showing good techniques and skills in all areas of percussion. thank you to Jim Casella and all the composers from Tapspace for producing such high level literature!!
