There are a lot of great resources for the modern percussionist (here’s where I say “I wish I had these when I grew up…”) and Marimbalogy.com is a great resource for information about marimba. The videos cover topics about grips, one-handed rolls, technique and more. Although Charlie doesn’t update his site very often (hopefully this post will inspire him to record something), his catalogue of videos is definitely worth watching.
One of the reasons I started PercussionEducation.com was to be a portal of percussion knowledge. I will be adding a links page to my site and I will definitely add places to go and check out information about teaching/learning percussion. Remember, there is not one way to teach anything. We have to be open and receptive of ideas. Go out and watch live performances, check out videos, read blogs and start to gather information to become the best musician you can.
