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.

Videos in the series feature other Peabody students, including Russell Fisher performing 08: Out for a Walk with Granddad:

Karen Toney performing 09: Merry-Go-Round:

And Mark DeMull with Fuzz, the collection’s 10th composition:

You can find more marimba performances on the Vic Firth Concert channel.

Next: The Legend of Zelda Theme on Marimba, iPhone Marimba Remix, The Wintergatan Marble Machine, and Tito Puente on the vibraphone.
