This informative book contains a detailed preface, several pages of warm-up exercises, and 33 varied etudes. Suggested approaches for playing and practicing, and theoretical/compositional considerations are discussed for each of the studies. This volume addresses many of the specifics in learning the vibraphone including the proper applications of dampening, dynamics, pedaling, phrasing, and sticking. The pieces are of a high enough caliber to be played in juries, auditions or recitals.
