Firth - Mallet Technique

Mallet Technique

Vic Firth

Vic Firth’s method book – Mallet Technique develops precisely one thing – TECHNIQUE . It is designed to assist the beginner by familiarizing him with the mallet keyboard, the intermediate player by further developing his speed and control, and the advanced or professional player by helping him to maintain and solidify his present technique while further developing sound, touch, endurance, and speed. The studies in this book employ major, minor, diminished, and augmented triads (all keys), as well as dominant seventh and diminished seventh chords to apply a study of theory as well.
