I was recently told that directors/percussion instructors in bigger schools and even colleges are moving away from the metallophone known as the glockenspiel. Is that really a thing? I am having a hard time understanding why the musical intentions of so many composers would be undermined like that? Obviously the bells have a certain desired effect that xylophone or marimba do not offer.
Are you doing this? Is this a thing? Who started the trend? Can someone help analyze why this bothers me so? Lol
