Emily’s Dream from #MarimbaBaby is an exemplary piece that promises both mastery over skill and musicality to advanced and intermediate performers alike.
The music in #MarimbaBaby, like Ford’s book Marimba: Technique through Music, will serve to enrich the burgeoning marimba repertoire of the past 20 years with pieces that are based on real music. I have already seen first-hand the benefit of this music on young students’ musical development and sensitivity on the marimba.
#MarimbaBaby is a wonderful collection of sweet and sentimental works which are a joy to play and listen to!
Hey, Hey, Hey from #MarimbaBaby is a beautifully crafted lullaby that is enjoyable for both the player and the audience. It brings out feelings of nostalgia, contentment, and pure compassion.”
#MarimbaBaby is a tremendous resource for any intermediate / advanced marimba player and a great follow up to Ford’s method book, Marimba: Technique Through Music. Every high school and college should have #MarimbaBaby in their library!
#MarimbaBaby was enjoyable to play and intuitive to learn because it provided sufficient technical difficulty while also incorporating musical growth through phrasing.
#MarimbaBaby is beautifully designed and contains even MORE beautiful solos! I loved working on them, and can’t wait to play them all!
