Easy Concert Percussion

6-9 Players

Instrumentation: • Glockenspiel • Xylophone • Chimes • Marimba—4-octave • Drums (snare drum, bass drum) • Cymbals & gongs (tam tam, crash cymbals) • Accessories (flexatone, tambourine, temple blocks, castanets, ratchet, triangle, police whistle)

Geared towards younger ensembles, Traumatic Chromatic focuses on playing a fast chromatic scale through isolating whole tones in each hand. The result is not only an effective study in this important coordination, but an entertaining and colorful piece that utilizes a variety of common concert percussion instruments and accessories. Treat it as a chromatic etude, or as a study for proper accessory technique, or both!

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.
