This piece has been played by elementary students as a project piece or by advanced students as a reading piece. It’s intent is to help with 1/16th note subdivisions and counting. It combines popular drum patterns used in a lot of electronic music and breakbeat tracks.
This was written a few years back and several student ensembles have played it over the years at Creative Music Adventures. Since many of you who follow these posts/emails are piano teachers, I thought I would share it for you and your students. We’re all looking for fun summer projects and this may fit the bill. Or if you play, it’s always fun to read through ensembles with friends.
