by Doug Edwards
Take one part Christmas spirit, one part barred percussion, and a healthy scoop of compositional creativity, and what do you get? A Merry Marimba Christmas! This collection of innovative arrangements by composer and educator Doug Edwards takes traditional Christmas carols to exciting new heights as they travel through more surprising twists and turns than Santa and his team of reindeer on Christmas night. Use them to add a bit of sparkle to your holiday program or to create smiling, joyous faces in your general music classes this winter. As always, Doug provides you with teaching tips and performance options to help bring the exciting world of the marimba to your students and audiences.
