Program Notes


March for Percussion Sextet is a well-written elementary-level piece that would make an excellent introduction to keyboard percussion and timpani performance. The instruments involved include orchestra bells, xylophone, snare drum and bongos, triangle and high tom-tom, concert bass drum and low tom-tom, and two timpani. The two keyboard parts use simple but effective melodic material arranged in repetitive patterns. The snare drum/bongo part does not use rolls or flams, and the bongos are to be played with snare drum sticks. The other three parts are also technically very easy. There is much dynamic contrast and each instrument is given a chance to carry the "melody" in the form of two-measure solos in the middle of the piece. While this piece is not demanding technically, it will challenge any young group musically, and would be a good vehicle for teaching balance, dynamics, rhythmic precision and phrasing.
