Chorales and Beyond by Timothy Loest and Chip DeStefano, with percussion by Kevin Lepper
This incredible resource is an ideal way to expand or vary the daily routine of your ensemble while developing essential fundamental concepts of sound and intonation. Daily routines cover breathing, long tones, pitch matching, intervals, scales, arpeggios, chords, and chorales. All chorales are written in 4-part harmony with all parts appearing in each instrument book for ultimate flexibility with instrumentation. Centered around 10 common major and minor keys, each includes a daily routine and three chorales that can be used to provide constant variety and freshness. Personal warm-ups and musical terms are also included along with vibrant and engaging percussion writing from longtime master educator and percussionist Kevin Lepper!
