Percussion instruments have of late become an important factor in music. In pursuit of fresh possibilities of sonority and expression the potential range of traditional percussion instruments has been noticeably extended, while elements from the most various of music cultures have infiltrated-and still do so-contemporary music practice to a marked degree. The number and the forms of individual percussion instruments have consequently grown to an almost inexhaustible multiplicity. In this way the percussionist is ever faced with more and more demanding problems: the development of the percussion section, which can almost be an independent and self-contained tonal unit in the modern orchestra, requires from every instrumentalist versatility and matured skills.

In the projected four volume Method of Instruction for percussion it is our aim to establish a solid technical foundation related to all the significant and difficult rhythmic and tone-colour elements of modern music, and also-for the less experienced player-as comprehensive knowledge as possible of the rieb variety of instruments at his disposal.

The Side Drum always occupies a predominant place within the percussion family and it is one of the most important instruments for the training of the percussion player. The study of drum technique, therefore, should be so thoroughly attended to that it will provide a good basis for the study of percussion instruments as a whole. lt is hoped that this book concerning the Side Drum, since it offers material for practice both broad in scope and also detailed, may support efforts to this end. Whether, from time to time, exercises should be omitted or expanded is a matter for actual instruction and for the selective discretion of the teacher in immediate contact with the pupil.

Eckehardt Keune, Halle (Saale), New Year 1974
