Bruno (bim bim) Castellucci from the Peter Herbolzheimer Big Band writes to the author about this book:
“Big Band Drumming – A Comprehensive Guide For Drummers is a master work and one of the best drumset books available, offering fine examples and intelligible explanations. You have succeeded in summarizing your experience in a concise and easy-to-understand method book approachable for all types of students and pros. Congratulations! Your book deserves to be found in each and every drummer’s and drum school’s library! Dear Walter, thank you so much for having written this book.”
This method book aims at all levels of students, from beginners to pros. The author presents traditional pandeiro rhythms, rhythms that were originally not played on the pandeiro but have especially been adapted to this instrument, modern rhythms, odd rhythms as well as short compositions for pandeiro, triangle, agogo and tamborim. Due to the fact that the human voice and the pandeiro are closely coupled with each other in Brazilian music, an entire chapter of this book has especially been dedicated to the combined use of pandeiro and vocals – something that will prove to be very helpful and important for the development of each percussionist’s coordination and independence.

INFANT HOLY BORN SO LOWLY SATB SAX QUARTET SCORE & PARTS
AS WITH GLADNESS MEN OF OLD SATB SAX QUARTET
TAMBOURINE DANCE SATB SAX QUARTET SCORE & PARTS
Joaquin Valverde; Arr. Mike Curtis
This arrangement for saxophone quartet, rather than favouring a soprano solo with accompaniment, strives to include all the players in the music making, particularly by distributing melodic material. In addition, all dynamics and articulations, minimally marked, should be taken as suggestions only, as performers are encouraged to make their own interpretations.
The lyrics for As with Gladness Men of Old were written by Englishman William Dix (1837 – 1898) in the 1860s, reportedly on the day of the Epiphany while Dix was sick in bed. The tune was included in a collection of German chorales edited by Conrad Kocher and published in the 1830s. As a testimony to the flexibility of such music, the hymn is also sung during Thanksgiving under the title For the Beauty of the Earth.
