If you’re still dreaming of summer vacation, we’ll catch you up on everything you may have missed. To make the most of the new school year, we’re very excited to offer a number of new methods and solos. Now that marching band season is in full force, we’ll dive into that, as well.
…okay, so perhaps our recent name change announcement was uploaded on April 1st, and perhaps that technically makes it a joke. So what? Imagine the possibilities! When’s the last time you’ve drummed with a meterstick by your side!?
Despite this, we have some very cool, very real projects to share with you! Whether you’re hungry to hear some new music, learn some fascinating perspective, or get teaching, there’s something for you in our April Newsletter.
Despite our… “very real” name change a couple weeks ago, we’ve been hard at work on some exciting projects, and we’re happy to be able to share them with you! Unique highlights include: multiple works with electronics (vibraphone, marimba, ensemble), two incredibly flexible percussion ensemble collections with adaptable instrumentation (1, 2), and a book dedicated to blowing your metronome skills wide open.
For a quick overview of all new releases, check out these brief highlight reels!
Despite the cold, we’ve been pushing on with some wonderful new projects to share with you. Beyond the usual stream of music, we’ve got a super-flexible new book to check out, as well as a video tour of our headquarters in Portland!
Happy New Year! Though 2021 challenged us all, it also proved the importance of community. Thank you for being part of ours!
To kick off this year of new opportunities, enjoy a peek of the latest our artists have to offer! The first video contains all new works for solo player; the second, all new works for ensemble and duet.
If you’re attending The Midwest Clinic this week and need plans to stay out of the Chicago cold, we’ve got some ideas for you. Five ensembles are performing 10 of our pieces, including the WORLD PREMIERE of a brilliant new work by Jeff Ausdemore! See below for the specifics, or click here for the full Midwest schedule.
We won’t be attending Midwest this year, but we’re grateful for these musicians sharing our artists’ hard work regardless. Safe travels to all who are making the trip!
