Student Reviews

This book is just marvelous. I would highly suggest getting this book and teaching from it. It shows and demonstrates the Musser Grip and the Cross Grip. Then it starts with simple exercises to get the four mallet movement going. After a while the exercises start to become more difficult and longer. However, I wish that this book had some dynamics to help with volume control or switching between different dynamics. This book doesn’t get too difficult for a marimba player but for someone who knows more then basics, I believe that this book would be excellent for sight reading and exercises. I really loved this book.
