A Workbook for Vibraphone and Marimba Players is an extensive series consisting of nine volumes aimed first and foremost at university and music academy students. However, the project addresses issues that vibraphone and marimba players will encounter throughout their professional career. Even though these workbooks were written with the classical performer in mind, there is much that is applicable to performers within any genre.
A collection of essays addressing central issues in the process of becoming a performing musician. Relevant to any academy music student, not just percussionists.
This part deals with the most important technical aspects of playing the marimba and vibraphone. Since
this is such an extensive subject, this part is divided into five volumes:
Book 1: On Playing the Vibraphone and Marimba
Book 2: On Practicing Scales and Chords
Book 3: Basic Instrumental Technique I
Book 4: Basic Instrumental Technique II (tremolo)
Book 5: On Improvisation
A collection of 45 études of which 18 are for solo marimba, 18 for solo vibraphone, and 9 that can be
played on either instrument. In these 45 études the instrumental techniques discussed in Part II are put
into a musical context. The studies comprise a theme and set of variations, in which all 45 movements
together make up a unified whole. The total performance time for the 45 études is just over three hours.
The études are divided into three volumes:
Volume 1: 18 études for solo marimba (études 1 – 18)
Volume 2: 18 études for solo vibraphone (études 19 – 36)
Volume 3: 9 études for solo marimba or solo vibraphone (études 37 – 45)
