Stoolz you guyz
for percussion ensemble
Stoolz was commissioned by Erin Baker and the Emory Percussion Ensemble (Atlanta, GA) back in 2013 when they were looking for a fun piece that was quick to learn. When we were kicking ideas back and forth, Erin mentioned, "...we have a bunch of stools we can use."
When I sent them the score to Stoolz you guyz, the group took the simple music I had written and turned it into a wonderfully creative and entertaining performance.
This piece is written in 4 parts, that can be easily doubled to incorporate more percussionists. The notation can be followed very simply, but I encourage anyone performing to watch the Emory Percussion Ensemble's premiere performance and make this piece their own.
