TECHNICAL: This piece was designed to be played on multiple marimbas [3 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

LETS PLAY is an upbeat piece that is quick to learn and fun to perform . At bars 51-58 all players need to produce a crisp clean attack with the mallets and accurate rhythm - be sure not to race the tempo at this point. If this proves difficult with a large number of players, then it is possible to select individuals and highlight these players to perform these bars as a feature.
