Description

Hailing from the western heartland of Casper, Wyoming, The Troopers have been known as “America'’s Corps” since they were founded in 1957. Today they honor their traditional heritage while embracing the American spirit of innovation through cutting-edge design and precision that is cutlass sharp.

Inside TROOPERCUSSION, you'’ll get a peek at how the Troopers percussion program defines their technical and musical approach, strengthening their roots, while creating a fresh approach to the world of marching percussion in the 21st Century. Weighing in at 90 pages, the book is packed to the hilt with content, and not just for audition candidates. Percussionists and drum corps fans of all levels will find useful tips and innovative musical examples throughout the extensive and fully orchestrated exercises and etudes for both the battery and front ensemble sections.

Eight full battery exercises, keyboard chop builders, technique tips, pictures, four specialized front ensemble etudes (called the "TrooPit" etudes), and five full percussion musical show excerpts give a glimpse into the original and creative approach applied by Reeves and Welborn. These are bold directions which don't follow the status quo, and by applying the approach set forth in TROOPERCUSSION, you don't have to either!
