Description

In Mainstream Mallets, Jason Hammond-Wood has compiled over 20 short, 2-malet solos with optional piano accompaniment to challenge more experienced middle school students while offering high school percussionists more performance opportunities.

All selections are familiar tunes, including classical favorites such as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Anitra’s Dance (from Peer Gynt), and The Barber of Seville. Also included are nonclassical melodies like The Stars and Stripes Forever, The Entertainer, and On Wisconsin (the university’s fight song).

All pieces are playable on xylophone, vibraphone, or marimba, and two of the solos are adapted to be performed as duets! The optional piano accompaniment may be performed with a pianist, or by using the provided audio accompaniment tracks.

Mainstream Mallets includes these 24 pieces:

  • On Wisconsin | J.S. Hubbard & Charles D. Rosa | (Med-Easy, :35)
