Holiday Favorites Arranged for Barred Percussion
By Doug Edwards
Book

Take one part Christmas spirit, one part barred percussion and a healthy scoop of compositional creativity and you haveĀ a Merry Marimba Christmas! This is a collection of instrumental arrangements of traditional Christmas carols forĀ barred instruments. Use them to add a bit of sparkle to your holiday program or to create smiling faces in your general music classes this winter. Teaching tips and performance options are provided.

Is this book for Orff instruments, or are the arrangements for chromatic mallet instruments?
