Arrangement Details

As you have already seen, here you’ll find a percussion arrangement and an easier Orff arrangement.

The first one is in A minor, although at the second part (m. 8) changes in C major, only to return shortly afterwards and end at the original tonality. The vibraphone plays the melody, while the rest complement harmony and rhythm. The meter is in 2/4 and and the piece is easy-level.

When it comes to the Orff arrangement, it is also of an easy level and adapted in D minor. It should be noted that in the transition from minor to F major will use both C# and C natural. That means that you”ll need either a two-row alto metallophone, or a separate C# note for the mallets, except from the bass xylophone that uses only the C natural.
