A new, exciting set of pieces in progressive levels of difficulty for students in the middle! Your Orff ensembles, percussion ensembles, and general music classes will love learning and exploring these pieces. The series includes traditional sounding Orff arrangements, marimba music, etudes for technique, and multi-cultural pieces. Forms such as the chacone, theme and variations, rondo, canon, and arrangements of fiddle tunes from Appalachia and Ireland are included. The book includes a CD of studio recordings and live performances of the pieces. Several pieces from this collection were featured in sessions at the 2003 AOSA national conference in Las Vegas and were received with great enthusiasm! It is a great resource for Grades 4 and up.
