by Kyle H. Peters
Instrumentation: Marimba — low A
Folk Song by Kyle H. Peters features coordinated interplay between the hands while simultaneously developing fundamental four-mallet skills. Utilizing a combination of double vertical, single independent, and single alternating strokes juxtaposed across the two hands, Peters weaves technical demands into a pleasant musical scene. As the name suggests, this solo features simple harmonic structures and singable melodies reminiscent of familiar folk tunes. It is playable on a 4.3-octave (low A) marimbas and works well as a short feature piece for concerts, auditions, or technical study.
Folk Song ships as a printed, professionally bound score, and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing.
