We recommend this volume to those who would like to play the mallet percussion that are gaining an increasingly important role in the rapidly developing teaching of percussion instruments. Starting from the first steps, familiarization with the notes, it provides varied, colourful musical material sufficient for several years, including not only folk melodies of different nations but also works by many important composers (Beethoven, J.C.F. Fischer, Händel, Kodály, Lully, Leopold and Wolfgang Mozart, Praetorius, Purcell and Schubert). Together with duets and pieces with piano accompaniment, which are particularly suitable for concert performance, exercises to develop skill in score reading are included in the teaching material, in the compilation of which the author drew on several decades of teaching experience. The textual instructions are provided in three languages: German, English and Hungarian.
