Description

As the title suggests, Jesse Monkman’s intermediate-level marimba solo Veranda depicts an uplifting and peaceful reflection in an open aired porch. The piece resembles a rondo song form with four distinct themes. The performer should do their best to separate all four themes from the simultaneous accompaniment and, as the composer recommends, “apply musical phrasing, dynamic contract, and voicing throughout.’’ Monkman also recommends a set of medium-soft, graduated mallets that will further help the performer separate the melody and accompaniment. As the piece is largely in F-sharp major, this is a perfect opportunity for young marimbists to expand their music theory abilities while learning an accessible and heartwarming piece.

Veranda ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover.

Instrumentation

Marimba (4-octave)*

*If a 5-octave (low C) instrument is available, this piece may be performed an octave lower in its entirety.
