Percussion Audition Material: Modern School for Xylophone, Marimba, Vibraphone

Nebraska All-State Percussion Audition Material 1 of 3 Percussion Audition books


By Morris Goldenberg / musical interpretations and editing by Anthony J. Cirone

The “Goldenberg book” has been used by generations of orchestral mallet players to develop their skills. As well as studies and etudes, this book includes excerpts of major orchestral repertoire for keyboard percussion instruments. This edition, edited by Tony Cirone, includes phrasings that were inherent in the music but not specifically written out. Stickings are also addressed: the original stickings are in uppercase letters, and the added stickings are in lowercase. This book is the primary source for keyboard percussion players to learn technique and orchestral repertoire.
