Percussionist François Dupin (1931-1994) studied at the Paris Conservatoire where he won many prizes, including first prize for composition. His professional work as a performer, composer and teacher combined produced many well-informed study books for Percussion, including Seventeen Studies for Xylophone. More
These studies address the difficulties which students are likely to have to overcome in their future, professional lives. Fingerings are helpfully suggested and clear instruction in French, English, German and Spanish creates a highly versatile study book. François Dupin's Seventeen Studies for Xylophone is imperative to the technical progression of all advanced Xylophone players.
