Instrumentation: • Xylophone • Marimba—4-octave • 4 timpani • Drums (bongos, timbales, congas, bass drum) • Cymbals (ride cymbal, crash cymbal) • Accessories (claves, shaker, guiro, cowbell)

In Clave & Sons, Eric Rath effectively exposes young players to some of the basic patterns and functions of Afro-Cuban instruments like congas, bongos, timbales, claves, and guiro. With simple yet fun parts, students will broaden their rhythmic vocabulary while enjoying the process playing music that’s accessible to audiences.

This piece was extracted from the larger compilation book, Beyond Basic Percussion. Co-written by Eric Rath and Ralph Hicks it contains 10 ensembles from which beginning percussion students can learn. Also helpful is the fact that this piece is flexible in its instrumentation. If you don’t have the full arsenal of players or equipment, some parts have been denoted as optional.
