Percussion History and Literature is a world-first in percussion education. Designed for Percussion Performance Majors and Music Educations Majors at the College/University level or anyone interested in the world of percussion instruments in Western Music. This course is perfect for any graduate student preparing for written and/or oral exams. Undergraduate students will learn about the most important aspects of their instruments' history, as well as becoming familiar with the most important pieces in the musical literature. The course contains a very thorough overview of the history and literature of percussion instruments from the early influence of Janissary Music to the 21st Century. There are six main modules to the course: Background and Essential Information, Instrument Histories, Orchestral Literature, Chamber Literature, Percussion Ensemble Literature, and Solo Percussion Literature. "This course is a must-have for every collegiate percussion student and instructor! The content is expertly selected, and the included resources (such as recordings and pdf scores) are wonderful to have in one place. Providing a well-organized and flexible format, this course can be implemented as a semester-long class, or as a supplemental study for comprehensive exams. We have enjoyed using Dr. Weinberg's Percussion History & Literature course here at the University of Missouri!" ——Megan E. Arns, Assistant Professor of Percussion, University of Missouri School of Music
