The TRADITIONAL Elements in Time edition is for those wishing to brush up on their old-school chops in a new-school way. As a true rudimental drum corps aficionado, Danny Raymond is certainly qualified to deliver some classic rudimental solos…but also equally qualified to put his own mark on each one of them.
Master snare drummer Danny Raymond's Elements in Time series starts off with the DEVELOPING edition. In this collection, Raymond delivers three intermediate level snare drum solos designed to educate and entertain, qualities which are trademark Danny!
Tricks of the Trade is a challenging, high-energy duet between drumset and marching snare drum. This unique setup brings the elements of style and feel to the forefront through grooves such as drum-and-bass, funk, and rock. As the title suggests, there are opportunities to trade licks, which creates a timing challenge and produces an exciting palette of...
The Apprentice, by Danny Raymond, is the perfect choice for a new performer. The piece explores simple themes and variations through dynamics and easy sticking patterns. The tempo is a controlled 124 bpm, so the performer will have a fair amount of space between the notes to practice his or her tempo control!

It even features a slow-to-fast double-stroke roll breakdown section!
