Reviews for Drums and Percussion Instruments

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
Each book provides several examples of the title instruments and how they are played around the world.

Many captioned photographs, illustrations, and sidebars provide visual interest but also crowd the pages. Websites. Glos., ind.
