Formerly published under the title "Timpani Tuning & Etudes," the
book has been renamed for publication by Studio 4 Music because we felt
the old title was misleading. The etudes do challenge the advancing
timpanist's tuning skills, but they include so much more -rhythmic,
technical and, above all, musical challenges. We predict that
college-level teachers will soon find this book indispensable. Included
are two solo pieces that are suitable for juries or recitals.
