Songs of Eden

Five Attainable Duets for Marimba and Vibraphone
by Brian Blume
Price: $16.00
Duration: 10:45
Pages: 12
Level: Med-Easy
Personnel: 2 players


In this collection of five duets for marimba (low A) and vibraphone, Brian Blume brings contemporary literature within reach of younger players. They are intended to reflect on the essence of the joy, beauty, fun, peace, and purity of the Garden of Eden.

Included in this collection:


  1. Follow Me (Easy, 1:35)
  2. Afternoon Song (Easy, 2:50)
  3. Skip Step (Med-Easy, 1:50)
  4. A Moment (Med-Easy, 2:25)
  5. Toddler Escapades (Med-Easy, 2:05)


The first two duets are especially suited for newer players, while the latter three add a few challenging elements while still remaining quite achievable by middle school or high school students. They also make great reading exercises for more advanced students (or a student with a teacher, perhaps), or them may be useful in a college pedagogy course. All pieces require only two mallets for each player.

Songs of Eden ships as a fully-bound book with a color cover which includes a separate, bound booklet from which the second player reads his or her parts.



These pieces require a 4.3-octave (low A) marimba, standard 3-octave vibraphone.

"I've been playing percussion now for 21 years. I took over a program in disarray, especially in the percussion section. I recently purchased the "Five Minute Drill" book from Ralph Hicks & Eric Rath, and have found it to be engaging, fun, and educational. Tapspace is a wonderful purveyor of percussion literature, and I recommend anyone and EVERYONE to purchase this book, from the beginning percussionist to the seasoned veteran, because the presentation and playability will prepare your percussionists for just about everything they may see. Don't forget to pick up a copy of "Beyond Basic Percussion" to supplement the learning they will get out of "Five Minute Drill." Thanks again, Tapspace!"
