Description

Brian Mueller’s Big Adventure was written in 2017 for the Middle Tennessee State University front ensemble. In it, Mueller uses many common keyboard percussion techniques so the piece can function as a warm up or etude.

It is only scored for four mallet percussion instruments but each part can be doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled to suit the needs of any ensemble. The mallet parts are accompanied by a rhythm section comprised of drumset, congas, piano, and electric bass. The piano part is simple enough that it can be managed by a non-pianist.


Although Big Adventure was originally conceived and composed as a front ensemble “lot tune” it can help round-out any concert program by adding a little lightheartedness and fun!


This piece comes with a full, bound score with a color cover and includes an online download code to access individual parts for printing.

Instrumentation

Glockenspiel

Xylophone

Vibraphone

Marimbas—4-octave

Drums (drum set, congas (2))

Cymbals & gongs (Hi-hat cymbals, ride cymbal, suspended cymbal)
