Master the art of finger cymbals (zils, zills) with this comprehensive instructional video from renowned percussionist and rhythm teacher Tobias Roberson. Tobias leads you step-by-step through the basic techniques with close-up angles demonstrating exactly how to get great sound from your zils. A variety of rhythms and patterns are introduced and broken down to give you an extensive set of material with which to build your repertoire. In the second section Tobias teaches two dynamic compositions for the zils. First is an easy to play interactive duet for drum and zils. This composition shows how to build an exciting piece from the skills you have already learned. Rachel Brice and Mardi Love then perform a matching choreography that can be used as is or to inspire your own creativity. The second composition features more advanced possibilities with fast and syncopated technique.
