Marching Percussion Playbook Vol. 2: Timing is Everything

I can't imagine in high school having immediate access to a former Cavalier snare, Front Ensemble member, or a Phantom Regiment Snare Tech/Caption Head! The percussion community is extremely fortunate that he has begun to professionally deliver his curriculum and video lessons in a format accessible to the world. Huei has quickly risen to the top, and is setting the new standard for online percussion education.

Huei has been able to touch thousands of lives through music in a positive way, via his extensive institutional, drum corps, winter guard, and social media presence. These content-rich handouts are an excellent way for drummers, beginner and advanced alike, to develop their fundamental skills, many of which are often neglected when practicing. Any drummer who wants to gain valuable insight into what makes the difference between the amateur and the professional musician needs to check out Huei's creation!

As a relatively new percussion instructor I am looking for ways to optimize instructional time with my line. I've used, with great success, excerpts from the free Periscope lesson handouts, information contained in the actual broadcasts, and instructional progressions contained therein. My students have greatly improved their percussion vocabulary and confidence - in large part due to these resources. What better way to support such great resources and an amazing artist than with the Marching Percussion Playbook?!

Whether you are learning online through his Periscope Lessons, reading his inspirational Blog Posts, or practicing through his Digital Downloads, Huei, and all of his educational content, is an essential part of the percussion community. With such an impressive background in percussion, it is no surprise he is one of my favorite educators. Follow this guy!


You just started and don't know how or where to start developing rhythm & timing.

You're a great solo player, but want to learn how to play with other musicians.

You want to teach students how to begin thinking about and developing their time concept.

You have a line of players from varying backgrounds, and need to get everyone up to speed to begin playing clean.

You want to play at a world class level.


Why do I need to work rhythmic timing?

  • Creates feel, style, and character in your playing
  • Communicate with other musicians
  • Builds foundation of major elements of music performance
  • ABSOLUTELY necessary to perform at world class level

will help you create:

  • Structured, systematic, organized practice
  • Application to any instrument: percussion, winds, brass, strings
  • Corrections in deficiencies otherwise unnoticed
  • Practice all basic variations of duple and compound rhythms
  • Improve skills in reading, notation, and sight reading

What's inside the digital download?

Inside you will find:

In-depth text and explanation of high-level concepts like Time Concept, Pulse Dissonance, Burying the Metronome, and more.

Musical examples of basic and advanced skill sets

Multiple pages of Duple, Compound, and Sextuplet exercises

How do I use the text and exercises?

The supplemental text can be read in one sitting, or you can start with the sample exercises and reference back as needed. Just like the process itself, the way you use the handout can be customized to how you learn best. 

For teachers who are non-percussionists or are short on time, it's a great reference you can direct students to - literally just copy and paste this message: 

Can I get this information in a private lesson?

This is the exact information I share with my private lesson students, individuals who have gone on to make their high school & college drumlines, Top 12 drum corps and Top 12 indoor percussion groups.

I've also been able to condense multiple private lessons worth of information into a text and musical example format. For those really hungry to learn, the material is presented in a very clear, systematic, easy to follow sequence.

Considering how many private lessons it would take to relay this information, this is a tremendous investment in yourself as a student, parent, and teacher that you can always continue to refer back to after you've purchased the product. You can literally use this content forever!

What if I don't understand the content?

With every purchase, I am more than happy to help you figure out any problems you might encounter. You can send me your question on your favorite social media platform @hueiyuanpan.


Thanks for checking out the product! I really appreciate all the notes of encouragement and support. What I've completed is the distillation of not just hours and hours of me thinking, writing, and creating this product, but all the years I’ve spent playing, practicing, and teaching these concepts.

Note: While many have offered to pay more, my goal is to make this product accessible to a wide range of students and teachers. If you're interested in offering more for the value of the product, the + sign in the pricing section allows you to enter a higher amount.

If you enjoy the product, please let me know. I'd love to hear from you, and I read every single message I get.

Thanks again, and I look forward to connecting with you online!
