Children’s Song
This piece is written for one player playing on a vibraphone and on a marimba. The 4th mallet has to

vibraphone (2, 3, and 4) should not be too hard, yet they should have a clear tone to give a good
contrast to the soft marimba sound.

4 3 2 1

The vibraphone should be placed very carefully; following notes have to be reached on the marimba:
