Question Glockenspiel Beginner

I've had a glockenspiel for a while and I know how to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but I don't really know where to begin to learn to genuinely play it if that makes sense? My school isn't offering percussion this year so even video recommendations would be helpful (: Thank you

If Twinkle is your level, it sounds like you can progress a lot just by playing the thing. Then just check youtube to find more guidance.

The only percussion techniques I know of that may not be self-explanatory is playing one note repeatedly (rolls) when other instruments (like a flute) might just sustain it and playing with two clubs in each hand. But that's typically more relevant for marimba and/or vibraphone.

You could see Ruth Underwood or perhaps Gazeuse! era Gong for inspiration.

I know nothing of Glockenspiel. But as was mentioned before, maybe just experiment with it.

Like make yourself a loop backing track with 3-4 chords on a guitar or something and try to jam on it. That's pretty much how I learn new instruments.
