  • Music educators seeking the confidence required to effectively guide young percussionists
  • Band directors looking for a classroom resource

"Percussion With Class is the most comprehensive percussion method book I've seen to date. With cleverly written exercises, great musical examples, and concise explanations, Mr. Wallace has made percussion accessible to young students and their teachers."

"Mr. Wallace has developed a superb percussion text that clearly explains the proper techniques needed for each instrument and how to correctly develop those techniques. In addition, he has included excellent ensembles that work very well with the students. This is the only book I have seen that actually teaches percussion technique for all the instruments and sets out a clear course of study and time guidelines for learning each instrument."
