Marimba: Technique Through Music - Mark Ford

One of the common problems with method books is that they focus so much on technique exercises that students do not practice the techniques in actual music - leading to a lack of practical application of technique!

Marimba: Technique Through Music by Mark Ford provides an answer to this, focusing on etudes and solos to work on technique rather than exercises. This text features solos categorized based on the technique: Double Vertical, Single Alternating, Double Lateral, and Single Independent strokes.

Each technique features several solo works that range in difficulty, and there are several solos that combine techniques at the end of the text. This is a great tool for students who get bogged down in exercises, providing entertaining, fun to play solos that will maximize technique!
