dc.description.abstract The presentation of a senior recital signifies the capstone of four or five years of study as a music performance major. As a double major in Music Education and Percussion Performance, this recital is offered as a demonstration of all that I have learned as a percussionist since the beginning of my studies with Dr. Erwin Mueller at Ball State. Unlike any other instrument, percussion encompasses an almost limitless array of musical instruments that must be mastered. Whereas a pianist or cellist must only learn to play the piano or cello, percussionists must learn to be timpanists, mallet players, drummers, world percussion experts, and more. The literature that I have chosen for my recital encompasses the main areas of percussion that I have studied with Dr. Mueller. In giving this recital I will perform a marimba concerto, a blues vibraphone solo, a snare drum solo, and a timpani solo. As music is not only about playing by oneself, but with others, I will present a percussion trio work for xylophone, marimba and piano, and also a duo piece for two high grade marimba players.
