music educators generally agree that improvements in instructional materials and teaching methods would simplify the process of training the young percussionist who wishes t o play drums in a stage or dance band. There is a need far an organized method of procedure to help teachers and students in this regard.
In this paper it is proposed to examine the necessary equipment and instruments and to analyze the playing techniques fundamental to adequate performance of stage band literature. It is further proposed to show a new method for stage or dance band drum students based on the techniques analyzed.
