Contemporary Solos for 4 Mallets was written as an intermediate-level follow-up to Contemporary Etudes for 3 & 4 Mallets. Both books were designed not only to develop the technical elements of 4-mallet playing, but also to introduce students to a variety of contemporary harmonic, rhythmic and notational styles. The student who has progressed through both volumes should be well-equipped to tackle much of the serious and difficult solo material available to marimbists today.
