Overview

The first time we heard this exercise we had to listen to it again. And again. And again. Repeat. Then we produced the ensemble recording and added in the beat track and it was over (repeat that whole listening to it again and again thing).

This exercise's main intent is to help further develop your or your ensemble's vertical stroke technique and especially that technique with 4 mallets. If you/your ensemble aren't/isn't quite ready to tackle this with 4 mallets you can easily turn one part into two by splitting up the chords.

Also, Nate has provided excellent beat tracks to complement this exercise and they really help tie the melodic and percussive aspects of this music together. Check the complete score sample above to give the beat track with the ensemble recording a listen!
