This is a guide designed to help you locate information and materials related to percussion. It is not a complete bibliography, but rather indicates key resources and types of materials that may be useful when seeking information in this area. It can act as a starting point for your research and as a reference point that you can revisit in the future. Across the top are tabs to direct you to information regarding book, score, audio and video recording, article, periodical and other online resources for percussion.
Please note: This guide largely focuses on materials and resources that fall under the larger umbrella of the percussion instrument family. For more information on specific percussion instruments, you can conduct keyword searches and, to a lesser extent, subject searches using the desired instrument rather than the term "percussion" (for example, marimba or xylophone).
All listed items are available in the Music Library. Consult Mirlyn for complete holdings information and availability of materials. If you need assistance, a music librarian will be happy to help you. Also, if you have recommendations for other resources on percussion that are not owned by the Music Library, please let us know.
