Old Tyme Muster
by Traditional; arr. Jason Baker
Veteran composer Jason Baker has a passion for 18th and 19th century American fife and drum music that is well represented in Old Tyme Muster. Inspired by medleys of tunes that are often performed by fife and drum corps at annual “muster” gatherings throughout the summer, this fun and historically significant collection is scored for snare drum soloist and mallet quintet. The three pieces contained within are creative combinations of tunes that date all the way back to the 1800s. Ironically, the snare drum writing is not soloistic in nature, acting almost exclusively as accompaniment to the keyboard percussion. It also includes optional solo audio accompaniment tracks (minus snare drum) allowing the snare drummer to perform the pieces without mallet players. This makes for a great option for recitals, juries, lessons, or even as a morning warm-up!
Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Xylophone • Vibraphone • Marimba—low A* • Snare drum *Shared Note: These pieces are also playable as a snare drum solo using audio accompaniment tracks (included). If choosing to perform them in this manner, a playback device and amplification system will be required.
