Carroll - Orchestral Repertoire for Tambourine, Triangle, and Castanets

Author: Raynor Carroll

Title: Orchestral Repertoire for Tambourine, Triangle, and Castanets

Description: Raynor Carroll, principal percussionist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, has compiled this book of some of the most commonly asked excerpts on the Tambourine, Triangle, and Castanets portions of an orchestral audition. The book contains the entire Tambourine, Triangle, or Castanets  part for each piece, and each part is re-notated in an easily readable format.
