MULTIPLICITY (collection of 10 multi-percussion solos)

Easy to Medium - Grades II to IV / Players: 1 / $12.00

“Multiplicity”, is a collection of multi-percussion solo pieces for the younger musician. Written at the easy to medium level, the solos in the collection are a step towards filling a gap in the percussion literature world. Creative multi-percussion solos at this level that are rhythmically, stylistically, and formally well composed and are challenging yet fun are difficult to find. Although there are ten compositions, only four different set ups are needed to perform the book making it easier for smaller music programs to provide adequate instrumentation. And if necessary, all of the compositions can be performed using set-up four! Do you need to feature one of your students on a middle school to young high school percussion program? If so, “Multiplicity”, is the collection for you.
