A Collection of 3-mallet solo pieces for Beginners
Instruments: Marimba or Xylophone
Level: Easy – Low Intermediate
Selection of fun and easy to learn pieces will help to the beginner mallet players build a strong 3-mallet technique foundation.
Pieces from this book can be played on marimba or xylophone.
All pieces are for 3 mallets, however student can play them with 4 mallets and use instead of one mallet in one hand – two mallets and play with inner mallet. That way students could get used to holding 4 mallets and develop the skill that allows them to independently manipulate two mallets in each hand.
Each piece is suggesting visual images and telling a story. Pieces are short and fun to play.
