The Kid Should See This

Selections from Image: 20 Children’s Songs for Marimba

Vic Firth is “a stick company” that specializes in drum sticks, brushes, wands, mallets, and more. Their promotional performance videos, a growing set of their Marimba Literature Library videos, feature products and music, as well as young percussionists like Mari Takeda, a student from The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. In the video above, she performs Music Box, the 20th composition from Bart Quartier’s Image: 20 Children’s Songs for Marimba.
