Marimba Ensemble Techniques

The "missing link" in percussion education programs on the high school and collegiate level, is the lack of a chamber music experience, one player to a part, UN-conducted. Percussionists need to balance their rhythmic weighted literature with an equal melodic/harmonic challenge to grow as musicians with a method comparable to string players playing their quartet literature. Plating transcriptions of music from the orchestra/opera/solo repertoire, from "classics" to "pops", provides opportunities to develop stylistic awareness and interpretive insights as well as personal music expression. In the following GUIDE FOR MARIMBA ENSEMBLE CHAMBER MUSIC, the technical intricacies and logistics involved are presented to assist in fulfilling the above stated goals.
