Do It! Play Percussion 

A breakthrough in music education, the “Do It! Play in Band” Method from GIA Publications features an expanded emphasis on cultural and musical diversity through the development of world percussion repertoire and technique. This advanced approach, co-written by leading studio percussionist and music educator Steve Houghton, integrates ethnic rhythm instruments with traditional drums and percussion to create a contemporary learning system that gives new meaning to the term “total percussion”. Only the “Do It!” drum method covers the extended African, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban percussion families with individual lessons and compositions for large and small ensembles as well as solo performances— exciting even the youngest musicians as it broadens their musical horizons.
