This book is designed to give the marimbist a stronger and more fluid facility behind the keyboard through a process known as downbeat displacement. This system will help the player literally understand a certain technique inside and out. This idea has proven itself successful in many drum set and snare drum methods, and it can certainly be applied to the marimba. It is simply done by taking a common sticking pattern and moving the downbeat from one note to the next.
