MILE MARKER ZERO
WORKS FOR 4.3 MARIMBA FROM KEY WEST, FLORIDA
MILE MARKER ZERO ​​is the name of a collection of marimba solos I composed and performed while serving as an artist in residence on the island of Key West, Florida.  

In my years of teaching I have seen marimba students struggle with finding compelling repertoire because they do not have access to professionally sized 5.0 octave instruments.

I set out to write a dozen pieces showcasing intermediate and advanced skills that could be performed on the more accessible 4.3 octave marimba. They are all relatively short, designed to function like Musser Etudes, and aim to exhibit a bit of the whimsy of Key West.

Thanks to the generosity of The Studios of Key West, I was able to work with some terrific colleagues along the way and was constantly inspired by the many interesting people I met.

My summer of 2019 in Key West will always hold a special place in my heart thanks to the terrific people I now call friends. Thank you.
