This is a short snare drum piece lasting 16 bars consisting of grade 1 and grade 2 level snare drum rhythms.

The snare drum sheet music focuses on using plenty of dynamics, which are for volume changes in the music.

The dynamics include:

  • p (piano = soft/quiet)
  • mf (mezzo forte = medium loud)
  • f (forte = loud)
  • a wide version of this shape: < (crescendo = gradually getting louder)
  • > these arrows above the notes are accents, which indicate that you play loud on this note only.
