Son of Hot Marimba
Walt Hampton, you have brought so much joy to kids, and so much ease and fun to the life of this music teacher. The pieces sell themselves! I have not met a kid who doesn't love them. Bless you!
Excellent Marimba Music
I have had the privilege to play these songs at Walt Hampton's "Hot Marimba" course for World Music Drumming. It's awesome that these are notated, and I love how Walt introduces his compositions. If your just starting out an Orff ensemble or a marimba ensemble at your school or community it would be best to buy the "Hot Marimba" or "Marimba Mojo" books first. These books touch more on the rudiments of marimba playing an offer great insights to arranging and playing percussion accompaniments with your group. This book would do well to challenge intermediate -advanced groups in the upper elementary grades, as well as groups in middle school and high school. Great melodies, chords, and song titles; I would highly recommend this being in your library if you teach percussion or Orff at all.
