This is an updated version of the famous Saul Goodman Modern Method for Tympani. Roland Kohloff was the Fundamentals Editor and Gary Werdesheim was the Music Editor, under the direction of Anthony J. Cirone. Many pages were re-engraved and many photographs have been redone. This edition provides instruction on timpani technique with lessons designed for beginning and advanced percussionists alike. The book continues the legacy of Saul Goodman as timpani teacher and mentor to generations of percussion students, teachers, and performers.
