by Joe Porter
University of Lethbridge
2013



This thesis presents a six-mallet technique developed by the author along with a pedagogical guide teaching that technique. Included in the thesis are the following components: 1) a DVD which demonstrates how to learn the technique, with performances of significant compositions for six mallets; and 2) a pedagogical survey of recommended works written for six mallets on a scale from relatively simple to highly complex, giving students a repertoire of pieces from which they can develop six-mallet marimba technique.
