Student Reviews

4-Mallet study is a really great book. I personally wouldn’t teach anyone new to mallets though. This seems more of an intermediate text. The book can get very challenging but it will really help with someone who has not mastered 4-mallet independence yet. I would suggest this book for a college student to have in their library. It contains a lot of different Etude’s that could be short fun pieces to learn for studies or warm-ups. I really enjoyed this book.
