Happy to announce a new book:


12 variations for Marimba

A dialogue exists of phrases. The main item of this book Dialogue 12 Variations for marimba is phrasing. Each variation presents a topic, which regularly appears in the marimba literature such as arpeggios, octaves…(see content). Dialogue 12 Variations for marimba could be considered as a sequel on Image 20 Children’s songs for marimba, yet now more directed to the intermediate player. Preparatory ideas can be found in Imagine A mental approach to marimba playing. All compositions can be played on a 4 1/3 marimba.
