The percussion professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (who studied with Mark Ford at East Carolina University) introduced me to this book and WOW!!!!! I'm not saying it's Stevens' "MOM," but it's one of the greatest 4-mallet instructional books I've ever used! Ever! So get it! Do it now! Don't think about it! Just do it!

Great Book!

Comments:

Mark Ford's "Marimba: Technique Through Music" has proven to be an outstanding resource for beginning and intermediate four mallet teaching. Each section covers specific techniques and includes short works that incorporate those techniques. The works are stand alone compositions that may be used for recitals and juries. What a wonderful addition to the marimba pedagogy repertoire!
