This is a really cool marimba piece. I have often seen it used for teaching relatively new marimba players. It is challenging, but attainable for young columnists. There are several different sections that cover different techniques.The piece starts with a quiet buildup; the marimbist repeats a simple melodic figure, adding another note or two on each repetition. This can be used to teach musical phrasing over a longer period of time. There is an optional cadenza in the middle, which allows even the rookie marimbist an avenue for creative improvisation. One of the coolest parts of the piece is the "harp section" where the marimbist drags the mallets across the keyboard to create a gentle, harp-like effect. The piece ends with a very fun and groovy section. This is actually a fairly long work for a young marimbist - a performance could be 8-10 minutes, depending on the length of the cadenza. It is a wonderful piece of music with much room for musicality and expression.
