Overview

Fierce is a very scalable (pun intended) 16th note scales exercise/warm up. If you slow the tempo way down, newer ensembles won't have a problem with the 9 meter changes, and if you reef the tempo up more experienced ensembles will enjoy the challenge!

Also, if you pick up the score you'll get an additional 11 audio tracks over the "standard" offering. Why's that you ask? It's because Nate does this cool thing where he creates what we here at D'Rumpus refer to as "beat tracks" for some of his exercises.* Created at 10bpm intervals, all you need to do is point your mains inward towards your ensemble, plug your music player up to the sound board, and press play! This enables your ensemble to listen for tempo from (recorded) percussion instruments as they play, kind of like when they've got a drumline or marching band behind them. Pretty cool huh?

*To hear one of the beat tracks in action listen to the complete score sample above!
