As McIntosh creates the percussion music the seven-time world champion Cavaliers will play this summer, it will appear in the SmartMusic repertoire. As a result, Cavaliers percussionists will be able to practice the new music in SmartMusic at home before they attend their monthly training camps, ensuring camp time is spent fine-tuning performances, rather than learning rhythms.

In addition, aspiring percussionists of all ages and skill levels will have access to this same repertoire through SmartMusic, enabling them to study and practice along with The Cavaliers’ drumline. Those who aspire to become part of this elite corps can experience first-hand what it takes and see how the show is refined over several months.

Connect with fans via social networks from the SmartMusic and Finale Community pages.
