Watch me play all of the SIMPLE SOLOS VOL. 1 [ SEASONS ] pieces here:
SIMPLE SOLOS VOL. 1 [ SEASONS ] is a collection of four simple miniatures which reflect the emotions evoked by the four seasons. I wrote SIMPLE SOLOS to not only give developing students a chance to play interesting pieces that help build their technique and musicality, but also to challenge myself to make complex music while deliberately placing limits on what techniques I am allowed to use.
As they all share a similar underlying style, the four works from SIMPLE SOLOS VOL. 1 [ SEASONS ] can be performed as standalone pieces, or all four works together in order (Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer) as one continuous multi-movement work.
Autumn is a brisk moving lateral-focused solo, Winter is a slower, spacious double vertical-focused solo, Spring is a chorale-style work focused on chorale rolling and voicing and Summer is a fast, lively solo with a focus on two handed independence.
All SIMPLE SOLOS VOL. 1 [ SEASONS} works require a 3.0 octave or higher marimba. You will receive one (1) PDF file with 4 x scores, including Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. If you only want a specific one of the four, can also purchase any of these solos as individual scores for $5 USD each from the store!
