Petite Suite - Three Snare Drum Duets - 3 easy duets, also with different types of strokes
Three duets designed to introduce the elementary student to the various tonal properties of the snare drum as well as to contemporary pictographic notation. Ideal for private or school lesson use and may be combined to provide a work of sufficient duration for recital.
A 1989 publication, 'Petite Suite' is a duet for early intermediate snare drummers. But it's not just a "straight" snare drum piece. In it, Kettle introduces developing players to the use of different areas of the drum, a variety of different strokes and the notation used to indicate these variations. This is not only an excellent pedagogical tool, but also a charming piece!
