The art of playing timbales, by Victor Rendon - Volume 1 - Book + CD
Language: English / Spanish
In about 100 pages, Victor Rendon’s tutor succeeds in laying the foundations of an efficient process of Timbales learning.
This first volume tackles a number of essential notions such as playing position, clave, the different basic sounds and the most famous rhythmic patterns of Latin music: Abanico, Cha cha cha, Son or Mozambique.
Illustrated with many photos and interviews with celebrated artists, the tutor moves forward to more tricky aspects and leads the learner onto independence exercise and solo parts.
On the CD, 75 playback tracks progressively introduce accompanying instruments such as bongos, congas, double-bass or piano, thus creating a virtual Latin music environment which helps the learner to understand and feel the role of Timbales in it.
This tutor allowed Victor Rendon to share and transmit a part of the precious knowledge and experience that he acquired through his collaborations with Mongo Santamaria, Carlos Patato Valdez, or Chico O’Farrill, continuing the pedagogical approach he developped as a timbales teacher in New-Yorkan schools.
