ABOUT THE BOOK

Bart Quartier's Image: 20 Children's Songs for Marimba is a great collection of songs written specifically for the young, learning marimbist. Each song helps build the basic techniques of 4-mallet marimba playing and will also help to build reading "chops". This collection is a great starting point in solo marimba literature.
