by Eric Rath

Easy/Medium Concert Percussion

6-7 Players

Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Xylophone • Marimba • 3 timpani • Drums (snare drum, 2 concert toms, bass drum) • Cymbals (hi-hat, China cymbal) • Accessories (triangle, temple blocks, tambourine, shaker)

At the core of Escape Artist is a funky groove. From this groove, younger students will have the opportunity to hone their timing skills along with rhythmic accuracy playing the four most common 16th-note subdivisions of three notes. Eric Rath has done an outstanding job of composing a simple piece that's not only educational, but a lot of fun to play and 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.

In addition to the printed score you are receiving downloadable:
