Description

Chelsea Tinsler Jones’ book Level Up! is a collection of 15 snare drum pieces that provide fun and engaging musical experiences which reinforce specific snare drumming skills in beginning and intermediate players.

The pieces in this collection progressively graduate or “level up” to encourage students to strive for new plateaus. Players can perform these pieces as solos (with audio accompaniment), with a friend, or with their teacher to encourage the ensemble listening skills required in chamber music settings.

Included with each solo is three play-along reference tracks:

1) Snare drum 1 - play-along with snare drum 2
2) Snare drum 2 - play-along with snare drum 1
3) Duet reference - listen to SD 1 & SD 2 together

These pieces serve as a fun vehicle for young players to hone their technique, ensemble communication, and musical expression. The pieces included in this collection are:
  • LEVEL 1: Zombie Apocalypse Theory | Easy | 0’45”
  • LEVEL 2: Drums for the Sake of Drums | Easy | 1’20”
