By Paul Bakeman
Book and CD
37 pages

Collection of 10 original marimba pieces that Paul developed with his students. Some of the arrangements were adapted and arranged by Brent Holl. These tunes will help students develop excellent mallet technique and provide a platform for creating original arrangements and improvisations.

The book includes hints for good ensemble training and tips on technique for drums, the shekere and cowbells. Each piece has brief suggestions on how to structure the form of the piece for performance, notes about the music and teaching tips. Supplemental materials such as images of full scores and individual parts suitable for printing can be found on his website.
