Wessels, Mark: A Fresh Approach to Mallet Percussion
"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."
