A three book series designed to teach basic to intermediate music playing skills and theory. Each book advances the player while introducing different musical techniques. Designed to be used with Jumbie Jam but can be used with other instruments.
Book 1 has the letter names of each pitch written below the stave. Book 2 only has the first occurrence of the pitch, and book 3 requires the student to read the notation without aid.
The three books have been written to offer a solid foundation in steel drum technique and reading standard music notation. Songs featured are popular melodies specifically arranged for the Jumbie Jam steel drum. Each volume also includes two original compositions that focus on specific musical or technical elements. A great introduction to steel drum playing for students of all ages!
