Easy Solos Vol. 1

"In the early 1970s the legendary percussionist Mitchell Peters composed unforgettable works for the young marimba player such as Sea Reflections and Yellow after the Rain. Now Daniel Berg continues Peters pedagogical idea of ​​a repertoire that is idiomatic while musically challenging for the young percussionist.

This booklet contains five solo pieces with four mallets for vibraphone, xylophone or marimba. All works have the range F-F and can therefore be played on any mallet instrument."

Easy Duets with duets for mallet instruments by Daniel Berg are previously published by Edition Svitzer. The books have been very well received among young students and teachers around the world.
