A Fresh Approach to Mallet Percussion by Mark Wessels
From Mark Wessels:
A logical approach for developing music reading skills, technique and musicianship on the keyboard percussion instruments. Students will have fun playing songs along with the play-along tracks which feature REAL percussionists performing ensemble arrangements – none of the cheesy midi computer sounds that you hear from so many other books.
In addition to over 90 pages of great reading studies, this book also includes a nine page supplemental “mini-book” for timpani – complete with instructions on the common techniques, exercises and solos for the beginning timpanist.
