Ten Easy to Intermediate Concert Pieces for Two-Mallet Marimba with Piano
by Sam Gevers
Instrumentation: Marimba (4-octave), Piano*
* If a pianist isn’t available, these pieces can be played with the included piano accompaniment audio files.
Wooden Storybook is a collection of ten modern and charming performance pieces for solo two-mallet marimba and piano at varying levels of difficulty. Composer Sam Gevers has created pieces that not only paint a picture and tell a musical story, but also develop musicality, creativity, and technique for mallet players from beginner to intermediate ability levels.
All marimba parts are written for two mallets and may be performed on a four-octave marimba.
While these pieces were written for two players (marimba and piano), they may be practiced and performed by a marimba soloist using the provided piano accompaniment audio tracks.
