Here are a few more tips for producing scores that are easily readable and will get you the performance you want. Chords One thing that people seem to be vocal and passionate about is how to write chord symbols. There are many ways to write them, but the important thing is to be clear. Of course, clarity also seems to be the most common justification that people give for putting way too many characters in their chord symbols. I will start by saying that most of the defaults in our notation software are not ideal.
The music we perform influences our approach, style, and instrument choice. Traditional or contemporary styles Projection and sound quality The drum set is made up of a collection of sounds that together, create one composite sound.
The rhythmic consistency and fluidity of each limb will directly effect how solid your beats are. The Ride Cymbal The ride cymbal is the most important element for achieving a good flowing swing feel Accenting the quarter note pulse within your ride pattern can help lock in your three remaining limbs when playing time Knowing where the quarter note is and how it relates to the rhythms you are playing will help develop solid time, regardless of what style of music you are playing. Some composers give exact information concerning style, tempo, ensemble or section accents, and suggested beats for certain sections of a chart.
I ve also read arrangements that provided nothing more than the name of the composition followed by numerous measures of repeat signs. Because a drum chart does not accurately represent what you play, it is essentially a guide that drummers use to improvise and compose an individual part. This is the greatest difference between brass or reed parts and a drum part.
Another point of contention is most arrangers are not drummers and often have difficulty communicating exactly what they expect from you on the part. One suggestion would be to question what you see and listen carefully as you read. Listen for the ensembles phrasing swung or straight , articulations long or short , and dynamics loud or soft and use this information to help compose appropriate beats and figure interpretation.
Your personal interpretation of the music should reflect the amount of detail found within the arrangement itself. Listen for: The introduction, melody, solos and background figures, shout. Interpreting the music with this approach can help bring about a more effective accompaniment plan. Engage the listener with ideas that have variety and contrast as you lead the ensemble through each musical phrase.
One example of this is when a musical theme ascends from a low register to a higher one, try playing the phrase by ascending from your low drum bass drum or floor tom , to a higher voice possibly snare drum or hi hat.
The written phrase on your drum part will not reflect any shape. Try consulting the lead trumpet part to discover the shape of any musical line. Articulation As drummers, we cannot play note durations with the accuracy of a horn player, but we can designate sound sources from the drum set that best complement the articulation and intensity of a note or phrase.
A note s articulation is determined by: a. Your approach to phrasing and articulating should always complement the ensemble, and by reading and understanding these symbols, you will bring clarity to the longer phrases you play.
Below is a trumpet 1 phrase with articulation marks. If we expose the rhythms with articulations, we have a phrase that illustrates the emphasized horn rhythms. These are destination points in a musical line that create a second tier of accent texture. With just the articulated rhythm, the phrase looks like this: Below is one common drum set articulation for this phrase.
Now you are phrasing and articulating with the band!! Dynamic Expression and Shape Music of all styles or genres has shape. As a piece of music develops, phrases ascend or descend with intensity creating different musical textures and moods. Drum parts from big band arrangements have a multitude of single flat line rhythms that do not indicate shape. It is up to the individual performer to interpret these rhythms around the drum set.
Flat line drum set section figure example: Below are the same two measures from the trumpet one part: The line drawing below approximates the shape of the above multiple note trumpet figure. You can apply this shape on the drums and cymbals. Set Up the Band! A set up is an improvised fill that helps prepare a section or ensemble entrance enhancing the flow and excitement of the arrangement. Set ups are determined in part by the tempo and style of the piece and can complement or contrast its parent band figure rhythmically or dynamically.
On the following page is a 4 measure phrase followed by various set up approaches at different tempos:. A faster tempo requires less rhythmic fill activity. Now let s look at each phrase side by side for analysis purposes. This is an example of parallel motion.
The triplet fill leads the ensemble to their entrance. The figure is then played in unison with the horns. The drums and horns move parallel to one another. Example B creates counter point. By accenting beat one of measure two, the drum fill produces a new rhythmic figure. The ensemble rhythm on beat two is not played in unison. The ensemble enters on beat two.
This is another example of parallel motion with sixteenth note set up fills. Because the tempo is slow, example D illustrates figures with eighth note triplet connector material. All rights reserved.

Poland was thus established as a multinational state, its population perhaps two-thirds Polish reckoned by language, but including some five million Ukrainians, three million Jews, one million Belarusians, and somewhere between half a million and a million Germans. It shared all three of its large national minorities-the Jews, the Ukrainians, and the Belarusians-with its eastern neighbor. The rest of the nearby locality remained shrouded in almost complete silence. In this dense and relentless vacuum even the slightest disturbance became amplified out of all proportion, and the reactions such disturbances provoked were similarly exaggerated.
