Pauke üben (Timpani Practise)

Progressive technical exercises for timpani

This practice book, first published in 1996, can already be called a classic of its genre. The concentrated form of the exercises, dealing with all the main areas of timpani technique, is unique in this field.

Contents:
Part I: Elementary rhythms
Part II: Exercises for 2 timpani
Part III: Exercises for 4 timpani

"Arend Weitzel has developed a great method of making exercises progressively more difficult, almost unrecognisably so. All possible stickings are included, even those that both left and right-handed people tend to avoid because they are uncomfortable."
Rainer Seegers, Principal Timpanist, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
