Mallet Percussion Ensemble (MPF4106.01)

Michael Wimberly

Mallet Percussion Ensemble performs compositions from repertoire arranged for percussion keyboard instruments, which include the Marimba, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Vibraphone, Balafon and Tubular Bells. The ensemble will learn classical, contemporary, Latin and African music, as well as compose original compositions. No prior experience for playing mallet keyboards is required, but reading music, pattern recognition, and knowledge of playing an instrument is a plus. Weekly group and individual rehearsals are a required part of the discipline. Presenting solo and ensemble works-in-progress for music workshop and on campus events is encouraged.
