Description

Whirlygig by Josh Walker is a great piece for beginning percussion ensemble due to the accessible rhythms, steady pulse, dynamic shifts, and overall fun character. With a 3/4 waltz feel and reminiscent of a musical carousel, its catchy melody and contrasting textures will engage performers and audiences alike. The piece is written for six players, but by doubling the mallet parts, it can be played with ten people or more.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.

Instrumentation

Glockenspiel

Vibraphone

Marimba (4-octave)*

3 timpani

Snare drum

*Shared between M1 & M2
