Complementary Percussion
A Handbook for Tambourine, Triangle, Cymbals and Bass Drum 

“This book is fabulous!  A much welcomed musical vehicle to practice these 
instruments that so define our craft.  This will be a definite staple in my 
studio at Eastman.”
-- Michael Burritt, Eastman School of Music

"Keith Aleo has filled a void in the field of orchestral percussion with his collection of etudes.  They are clever, musically written, and address real challenges and impracticalities associated with these instruments.  They are a valuable resource for all levels of experience."
-- Dan Bauch, Boston Symphony Orchestra
