Etudes are used to develop different aspects of techniques when musicians/directors teach and/or study an instrument and/or choreograph a dance. When the art of conductive teaching is put into place, there is not a lot of materials that address the many aspects and skills needed. My etudes are specifically written to develop the techniques of conducting. Each etude has multiple skills to be mastered. Within my current four etudes, each etude becomes progressively more involved and difficult.
Designed for use in a percussion classroom. Also these ensembles can be used as concert performance literature, at state and district solo and ensemble contest, and music festivals.
