Petite Suite

$8.00

A 1989 publication, ‘Petite Suite’ is a duet for early intermediate snare drummers. But it’s not just a “straight” snare drum piece. In it, Kettle introduces developing players to the use of different areas of the drum, a variety of different strokes and the notation used to indicate these variations. This is not only an excellent pedagogical tool, but also a charming piece!
