About the project
There are a lot of percussion method books, so why create another one? Well, the problem is that while there are a lot of great books on the market, none of them are really a "one-size-fits-all" solution. For percussionists, that means having students buy multiple books or photocopying together a bunch of exercises and etudes to teach concepts. For non-percussionists, it means that they might only have whatever information from their percussion methods course to work with and they don't really understand why they teach a certain way. For both of these groups of people, customizing these texts to fit into the curriculum is a nightmare! Enter The Open Source Percussionist! The goal of this project is to help you make the percussion curriculum of your dreams. The text is available for free via this website, and thanks to its Creative Commons license, you can edit it, alter it, and distribute it however you want as long as you give attribution. In a world where anyone can find detailed information on their phone, the author wondered why something like this didn't already exist. Well, now it does!
