Abstract

This document aims to explore the evolution of extended multiple mallet performance from the first performers to employ the technique, including the general history of the craft and technical variations, to significant artists, composers and literature. A variety of performance techniques, and grips will be explored in accordance to the literature with pedagogical examples of how certain concepts function. Specific attention will be given to achieving complete independence with six mallets, as can be facilitated with the 'Gronemeier' grip.
