Marimba, 4 mallet, intermediate(?) piece needed!!

Posted: Sat Aug 29, 2015 3:34 pm



I've been playing marimba for approximately a year and a half and have an audition coming up. I switched to mallet percussion after 8 years of clarinet and about 5 years of piano (I always hated clarinet). I had a teacher for the first couple months and ended up catching on pretty quickly if I do say so myself (probably a huge thanks to my past with piano.) I can play 4 mallets and when I auditioned last year I played Yellow After The Rain. I was SO nervous and ended up actually holding my mallets incorrectly. So that was a fail. I ended up as 2nd chair in the lower band. This year I'm getting an early start and want to kill it. I don't have a teacher so I'm struggling finding pieces. I want something pretty significantly harder than Yellow After The Rain that I can take a lot of time to learn but not insane. We normally audition with a piece about 1-2 minutes long but it can also be a part of a longer piece. Any suggestions or links would be so so appreciated!!!! Also, any just general advice on mallet auditioning/playing or advice on sight reading would be great! Thank you!!

I'm that guy who says he'll try out for drum corps next year and never does.
But I'm totally gonna try to march Alliance this summer.

The Zeltsman list is one of the best resources for this kind of thing:
