Marimba Music 1
Easy Arrangements for Diatonic Marimbas, Xylophones, and Other Instruments
By Jon Madin
Spiral-bound Book and CD
42 pages
Ages 8 and up

This collection of pieces composed or adapted for diatonic marimbas, xylophones, recorders and other C instruments was originally published in 1994 and was introduced in the US in 1997. All pieces are for mixed abilities with each piece having at least one or two parts that are easily learned and played. All have been classroom tested with primary and secondary school groups and also community groups and festivals.

Each piece lists a suggested age range, bars to remove, preliminary exercises, whether recorders are used, and extension ideas. There are also helpful notes about the piece and the instruments used.

An audio CD of complete performances of each song is included. It is helpful in demonstrating the melodies, bass lines, etc. as well as providing appropriate playing styles, moods, arrangements and instrumentation possibilities. 

Also available separately: Marimba Music 2 (item# 841082), Marimba Music for Little Kids (item# 842520), and Marimba Songs (item# 841217).

I will be teaching a unit of Peruvian music this fall, and am intrigued with the song, El Condor Pasa. Can the arrangement of this song, in this particular book, be played by 5th graders on Orff instruments?
