A Fresh Approach to Technique and Musicianship with Four Mallets
by David Skidmore
In this educational series, Grammy Award-winning artist and composer David Skidmore introduces each of the fundamental 4-mallet skills step-by-step in 24 progressive lessons. Exercises in each lesson provide not only technical training, but also teach valuable musical phrasing concepts. Each lesson culminates with a short solo that develops the techniques and phrasing concepts from the lesson into a musically meaningful piece. Individual solos or combinations of solos from the book are perfect for performing on recitals, solo contests, or high school and college auditions.
