The Study of Rhythmic Division- Bass Clef
for oboe (or any treble clef instrument)
by Pasquale Bona (1808-1878)- Italian composer
Pasquale Bona studied music in Palermo, receiving a diploma in composition and singing in 1830. Bona taught at the Conservatory in Milan, where he counted among his pupils Amilcare Ponchielli, Arrigo Boito, Franco Faccio and Alfredo Catalani. Today Bona is best remembered for his teaching methods of reading music and numerous collections of solfeggio.
The Jeanné publication includes Part II from Bona’s Metodo Completo per la Divisione. The objective of the etudes is to gain an understanding of rhythm through subdivisions of the beat. 24 etudes are included, gradually increasing in rhythmic difficulty. John Anderson has edited the etudes and has included suggested ways to improve rhythmic precision.
This volume is for any bass clef instrument. They are excellent for rhythm studies and also work well for transposition practice.
