The Well-Tempered Marimbist is a set of compositions for the two mallet percussionist. The collection consists of 24 etudes, each in a different key, similar to the pivotal Well-Tempered Clavier by J.S. Bach. Most of the new music available is for 4-mallets, leaving those learning keyboard percussion without much of a selection for music that is current. This book contains music that fits many genres from traditional melodic development to music that would be classified as modern or 21st Century. WTM includes a wide range of solos for the beginning mallet player to the advanced level percussionist. The easier pieces are great for sight-reading practice as well. These solos are excellent pieces for recitals and solo performances as audiences will love the outstanding melodies. The percussionist will enjoy how well each piece lays on the instrument. This book is sure to become a classic for many generations and is an excellent source to have in the library of every percussionist.
