For marimba duo


Difficulty: Easy
Duration: 1:30-2:00 (four movements)

Notes from the score: Elements for marimba duo was written with the young percussionist in mind, serving as a supplemental tool for percussion method books and/or private study. Each of the four movements represents a natural element through programmatic textures, phrasing, style, and tonality, drawing melodic inspiration from hymns with the corresponding element in their title.

The four elements in the collection, when performed in order, move sequentially through the “elements of music” including time signature, rhythm, tempo, dynamic range/frequency, melodic range, and key signature.
