Closing Remarks is a collection of 14 advanced solos for the snare drum. The inspiration for these solos came from several conversations with multiple collegiate-level educators. As percussion has grown the divide between traditional “Rudimental” snare drumming and “Orchestral” snare drumming has thankfully shrunk. There was consistently an expressed need for our students to have more modern literature that better prepared them for the challenges of contemporary snare drum solos. In composing these solos the goal was to create a wide range of reading, rhythmic, and musical challenges while always focusing on delivering an engaging piece of music in the process. Thank you for your dedication to the art of snare drumming and I hope you enjoy playing through Closing Remarks.
