Robbie Green’s solo for marimba, The Professional, is a perfect first marimba solo for any young percussionist looking to delve into four-mallet playing. Two different strokes are used throughout the piece, which are the bread and butter of marimba playing, the single alternating stroke and the double vertical stroke. There’s also an opportunity for the performer to play a melody in one hand and an accompaniment with the other, which requires balance between the hands.
This solo ships in a printed, professionally bound folio with a full color cover. This solo also appears in Sequential Studies Volume 2 by Julia Gaines.
