For the Xylophone (Marimba, Vibraphone, Vibraharp)
By George Lawrence Stone
Percussion - Mallet Instrument Method
Mallet Control has similarities to the Stone classic Stick Control in its attention to control, coordination, and flexibility, and includes work to improve the weaker hand. Exercises include single strokes, single beat rolls, diatonic scale progressions, and chromatic scale progressions. Further pages include exercises for cross mallets, double notes, intervals, and triplets. This book provides a comprehensive group of practice patterns for use by both students and professionals.
