Tale of the Dragon (for percussion ensemble). Composed by Brian Slawson. Percussion Ensemble. For triangle, zils (optional), claves, maracas, vibra slap, temple blocks, tom-tom, gong, bass drum, glockenspiel, xylophone, one small marimba (4 octave), one bass marimba (range = low C to G)*. *NOTE: if two marimbas aren't available, both marimba parts may (12 or more players). Easy. Score and parts on CD-ROM. 12 pages. Duration 2'00". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-29).

Tale of the Dragon was designed to address musical elements often overlooked in selections commonly performed by young musicians. Designed for large elementary ensembles with no member limits, it is an inclusive piece intended for many uses. It calls for Orff-style pitched instruments, as well as unpitched instruments and employs elements that, if handled properly, are bound to help students develop valuable skills. In this case, the tempo is quite slow which always provides for unique challenges in performance, particularly for the young. Also, the element of dynamics, and how it affects the musical story being told, will play a major role in helping students identify with their ability to tell a story through musical performance. This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
