Description

Brian Slawson’s Cricket, for solo xylophone with optional piano accompaniment, is a playful piece for a beginning mallet player. The piano accompaniment was also written with the beginner in mind and provides an excellent opportunity for a beginning percussionist to try their hands at the piano. While recommended for xylophone, the solo part can also be performed on marimba, vibraphone, or glockenspiel. In true Slawson form, their is  humor throughout, with grace notes and eighth-note figures creating a light-hearted mood. This piece will certainly entertain parents while students develop syncopation and mallet keyboard skills!
