356 pages, revised. "As a "treatise" about percussion, this book explores its subject in a thorough manner and structured form that aid in finding needed information readily. The main portion of the book is a logically ordered narrative that tells the story of the development of percussive music, including the nature of the instruments themselves and the present state of percussion. Beyond this narrative, other material, especially in Chapter 9 can be used for its practical information on percussion education, the organization of percussion performing groups, and the development of a percussion curriculum. The author writes about the subject in which he clearly has established his rights to musical citizenship, namely percussion- its history, practices, and current state. He is principal percussionist and assistant timpanist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra." FINE HARDCOVER, ex-library withdrawn. This softcover book was rebound into a library hardcover binding.
