Celebrated for its 'invaluable insights' (Jim Ross, Chicago Symphony) and hailed as 'an absolute gem' (Don Liuzzi, Philadelphia Orchestra), The Little Book of Orchestral Percussion deserves a place on every percussionist's bookshelf. Millstein leans on decades of professional experience, both as a performer (Lyric Opera of Chicago, Grant Park Orchestra) and as an educator (DePaul University, The Curtis Institute of Music) to inform this thorough little guidebook. From articulations to note lengths to muffling to stroke-types, this book covers all the sneaky intricacies inherent in the life of a performing percussionist.
