Early Spring

Chinese-inspired meditation on spring for tuned percussion

 Solo glockenspiel (F-D) or vibraphone

Becky wrote this lovely percussion study in early spring. An evocative percussion piece for students working with glockenspiel or vibraphone, Early Spring is based on the pentatonic scale. This cements the sound world emanating from the culture of the Sung Dynasty. The refinement of its arts inspired Becky with scroll of light colour on silk called Early Spring by Guo Hsi.

Written in 1988, this 2-minute study suits a good secondary or tertiary percussion student.
