Percussionists have three different tools to work with when it comes to the creation of music: rhythm, dynamics, and orchestration. Without fully developing each of these concepts, building a musical and vast vocabulary is extremely difficult. In this lesson, Frank Briggs will teach you how to start doing so with the help of various rhythms, accent patterns, and groupings.
