The Additive Method of Two-Mallet Study By: Gene Koshinski A unique, musical, and effective approach to the study of two-mallet performance, this method book (with its thousands of possible exercises) was developed through concentrated study and analysis of the two-mallet percussion solo repertoire and targets the most common technical challenges found throughout two-mallet works.; Over sixty-five standard works were analyzed in order to discover the twenty most prominent technical challenges seen throughout the entire repertoire.; The "Additive Method" breaks down two-mallet study into twenty categories of exercises, each category corresponding to a specific technical issue.; In addition to the excercises, the book contains a section on technique (grip & stroke), a systematic guide to the method, an annotated two-mallet repertoire list, a repertoire analysis chart, and a practice journal.; Appropriate for all performance levels.
