This one-of-a-kind tutor for young mallet percussionists teaches the development of correct two-mallet technique by presenting instructional material with over 85 familiar folk and classical tunes. Chapters cover such essentials as producing a good sound, roll development, sticking patterns, phrasing, simple and complex rhythms, keys, meters, repeats and endings, syncopation, double stops, glissando, swing music, and much more. Technique building exercises at the end of the book feature major and chromatic scales, arpeggios, intervals and double stops. Published with a durable cover and bound so it stays open on a stand, this 88-page book is value-priced for student budgets. Playable on marimba, xylophone, vibraphone, chimes and bells.
