Otto Seele - Schule für Xylophon
Otto Seele was a percussionist and timpanist with the Theater and Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig. The “Schule für Xylophon” is a “self instructor” for this instrument. His groundbreaking timpani method is also available in the VAPMedia Digital Library. The text for this book is in both German and English and contains exercises, melodies, and “easy pieces”. There is also a short section on four mallet playing and the vibraphone.
This book will make a wonderful addition to your historic pedagogy collection as well as a great resource for the history of the instrument. It is also perfect for sight reading or beginning players.
Like all of VAP Media's Digital Library offerings, the book was scanned at very high resolution, straightened, and meticulously edited to remove marks and dust.
