Thank you for your interest in these Video Master Classes of the 50 Etudes from my Portraits in Rhythm snare drum book. During this 17-minute video, I discuss the elements composers add to music notation that helps musicians create a more profound performance. I also address, in detail, the use (and lack) of dynamics, articulations, phrasings, musical directives, and tempo indications—all of which help to create passion and excitement in music. Viewing this Introductory Video provides a fuller understanding of all the Portraits in Rhythm Video Master Classes.
