“CONCENTRATION I” / Canon for four percussionists

Composer: Anthony Gustav Morris

“CONCENTRATION I” is a percussion piece for students of all ages. It is a canon whereby 4 players (or more if you split the instruments up) start at different intervals. It is designed to teach basic rhythms in a slightly challenging way, to teach concentration and to teach an avoidance of distraction.

Please download the part, print it 4 times, start with 4 clicks before each instrumentalists enters and do the repeat. That simple.

That's fair isn't it? (Said he, wondering why anyone would want to do anything else with it, but one never knows these days with sampling and rap records...).

CONCENTRATION I is the first of a series of educational studies for music students to learn rhythmic patterns. This is not so difficult but requires concentration. As a demonstration here all 4 parts played on a bucket, a pot lid and a wonderful book about the life of Arnold Schönberg (for which I would like to beg the forgiveness of his daughter Nuria who compiled it).

Music download is available above or just use the contact form and I'll send it in an email.

Played, filmed and edited expertly by Clemens Morris (one of my sons).
