In and Out for Trombone and Timpani
Nicholaus Meyers
This piece was composed to help fill a void in available chamber music for timpani, especially, when it comes to duets. The work is divided into two sections. The first being a more relaxed lyrical introduction followed by a more dramatic rhythmic finale.

Price $15.00


Four Reflections for Marimba 
Nicholaus Meyers
Four Reflections for Marimba was composed with the idea that they could be played as a group or individually. All four pieces can be played on a 4.3 octave marimba and each piece is approximately two minutes in duration. Audio selection is Mvt. 1 - Echo of Time.

Price $10.00


Slightly Funky for Trumpet and Percussion Nicholaus Meyers

The idea behind Slightly Funky was to compose a duet for trumpet and percussion with a small percussion set-up close to that of a drumset. Overall, the sound is similar to that of Funk music inspired by the band Galactic and that of James Brown. This composition would make a great opener or closer for a recital.

Price $15.00


12 Drummers Drumming
arr. Dane Newlove
Another holiday ensemble from the pen of Dane Newlove. Written for large ensemble but accessible by a good Middle School percussion section.  Scored for bells, vibes, xylophone, 2 marimbas, timpani, snare and bass drums and two aux percussionists playing cymbals, bird whistle, cowbell, triangle, tambourine, bulb horn and claves. Sounds like fun? It is!

Cary Dachtyl 

Tequila Sunrise is a fun to play marimba solo. Many students have played it for auditions and scholarship competitions. It was only available in manuscript format. After some encouragement from colleagues and my teachers, I have “finally” engraved and released this solo.
Newly added to the Texas Solo and Ensemble List.
