A Collection of 15 Pieces for the Young Xylophonist with play-along backing tracks.
Backing tracks will be sent after purchasing this Book along with audio tracks with melody!
Level: Easy - Low Intermediate
Some substantial changes are made to the 2nd Edition book:
- improved layout of each piece, so it is easy for students to read;
- extended amount of new technical exercises and etudes related to the pieces from this book.
The Book was written for the purpose of filling a tremendous void that presently exists in published solo keyboard percussion literature for beginner players.
"Through my years of teaching, I have used many beginner mallet percussion books and have come to settle on Nice 'n' Easy as my preferred first book for young percussionists. The pieces are musical, accompaniments are fun and exercises to go with each piece very useful for reinforcing ideas and musical concepts. There are both pieces written by Golovko and arrangements of classical works for violin and piano. They range from around preliminary to Grade 3 (Trinity/AMEB)"
