Cooking Light was composed on my homemade marimbas for an Orff class taught in the summer of 1998 at James Madison University in Harrisonburg Virginia. The marimbas were made with the help of gifted and talented students in Augusta County Virginia in summer school in 1998. The piece is published by Beatin' Path Publications and is available at their website (";> 
Dude is a little blues based on a bass riff that an eighth grader started playing at lunchtime on a bass marimba. He had one chord down pretty good, we put it in basic 12 bar blues and retired to the computer to add parts and melody. Here's the result. This one will be played at our school Pops Concert this year!
