LEVEL 2 HAPPY SUMMER TIMES

20.00

HAPPY SUMMER TIMES is a simple piece that sounds more complicated than it really is! Designed with only 2 main parts and a bass, it is a very impressive score for a trio to perform but can also work very well for larger groups. A lively and fun work that holds interest of audiences throughout.

AT A GLANCE:

KEY: C major

TIME: 4/4

RHYTHM: basic, dotted quaver and semiquavers used.

TECHNICAL: This piece was designed to be played on multiple marimbas [2 standard marimbas and 1 bass] however it still works with a smaller number of instruments  by placing parts on the same marimba at different octaves. If no bass is available, play on a standard marimba at the lower end - if notes are out of range transpose up or down the octave.

PERFORMANCE/TEACHING NOTES

The audio sample included illustrates the middle section of the work which moves through a series of keys until it arrives back at the initial theme. The rhythms incorporate dotted quavers and semiquavers. Marimba 1 and 2 players are required to play double notes in many sections. These notes have been carefully selected so that the patterns are easy to perform and comfortable for the player to move quickly on the marimba.
