Easy Concert Percussion

4 Players

Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Vibraphone • 2 marimbas*—(1) 4-octave, (1) low A *If two marimbas aren't available, both marimba parts may be played by sharing one low A marimba.

Brian Slawson's El Paso Waltz is written for beginning mallet ensembles so that each student in the quartet provides a specific function: The vibraphone carries the melody; One of the marimba players outlines the chords while the other supplies the bass; The glockenspiel, as is typical in a variety of settings, brings color to the arrangement.

If performed in a pleasant, light-hearted way, El Paso Waltz should demonstrate a carnival-like quality. This piece helps young players develop tremolo sensitivity and encourages eye contact, body language, and musical communication during slower tempos.
