WHAT NEXT? :
Here marks the endpoint of the research paper I wrote while at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam - the photos on the timpani pictures page were also taken during that period. On the conclusions page I wrote about a few of the possible ways a research idea such as this can be expanded. Much of my research would not have been possible without the internet and email, and hopefully this web page will provide a further step.
Ideally this site would be interactive, with the possibility for others to write suggestions and comments, and especially for timpanists to contribute their own thoughts such as I have already gathered on the responses page. As a first step, I have written responses to my own questions, which can be read on the next page, talking about the timpani I use here in the Macao Orchestra.
To further the idea of this site, I am happy to send a copy of my research questions to any interested players, and hopefully add their responses to this site sometime in the future. You can email me at [email protected] or if regular mail suits you better, go to the contact details page for a postal address
