This workshop will explore another Zimbabwean marimba tradition, which is as old as the instrument itself: picking out popular tunes from the radio and arranging them for marimbas. Songs taught in this workshop will be "Jamaica Farewell" and also a jazzy version of "When the Saints". Techniques will be taught for how to arrange popular songs on marimba. If there is time, "Under African Skies" by Paul Simon will be taught.
Please check with your Oregon State school district to verify that this workshop qualifies for PDUs. For more information, read About Workshops, Music Educator Workshops section.
