New to 4 mallets? Need to hone your 4 mallet foundation a bit? V-Mod is what you need.
This exercise/warm-up does a great job of isolating hands to build up the technical proficiency of 4 mallet technique. It also subtly teaches basic rhythms as well as duple-to-triple feel transitions, how 'bout that?!
All this and it also comes with Nate's groovy beat track to play along with. He's got samples at 10 beat intervals ranging between 100-200 bpm and these are great tools to use with your front ensemble to help develop their listening skills.
We think this piece would be a great addition to any beginner-intermediate front ensemble.
