Hi, I’m doing a research paper, and need to find some
answers. Why is it so difficult to find advanced keyboard
percussion sheet music? Where can I buy mallet music? How
come when I tell people I play the marimba they don’t
know what I’m talking about, especially when it’s so
closely related to the piano? Who are some professional
mallet players? How come you can’t walk into a normal
everyday music store and find a marimba, xylophone, or
vibraphone sitting in the store? How come you have tospecial order it?
Well, please email me if you have some answers to my questions. Thanks!

Marimba Literature?

Hey folks,

Well, as the summer approaches I was wondering if someone could recommend some marimba (or vibraphone..or xylophone…) literature of the beginning to mid college level. I recently finished learning the Leigh Howard Stevens arrangement of Tchaikovosky’s "Sweet Dreams", and am looking for some music to take to Governor’s School this summer. Four mallet music is preferable, but if you’ve got a sweet two mallet piece, I’d love to know 🙂 Thanks a lot!


PS: New message board is *very* nice… hopefully this will spur activity to be on par with Vibenet. 😉
