Two Snare Drum Cadences for Students

 These are transcriptions for students learning snare drum. The Kingston is from piece of sheet music I found, I've rewritten it in modern drum notation. The performance below follows most of what is on the sheet, but not all. 

If you swing them a bit, they morph into a New Orleans Roll offs or drum solos pretty fast. 

Have Fun.
