Zildjian Educational Drumset Guidebook - Chapter 9: Approaching Section and Ensemble Figures
Welcome to the Zildjian Educational Drumset Guidebook, featuring educator and drummer with The Army Blues Big Band, Steve Fidyk.
CHAPTER 9: APPROACHING SECTION AND ENSEMBLE FIGURES
Having your students “sing” section and ensemble figures from big band charts can help them replicate the phrasing, articulation, and overall feel of a phrase. This chapter demos two approaches to the same written notation; first as a section figure (played by one section of the band, i.e. brass or reeds, without drum fills), and secondly as an ensemble figure (with fills). Drum fills played in time can help connect ensemble phrases while supporting the entire band.
