2023 & New Music for Thee

Check out the latest releases for solos, duets, and percussion ensembles! In this batch we have tons of four-mallet marimba solos across many skill levels; educational, small percussion ensembles; funky duets; and artistic, large percussion ensemble pieces. There really is something for everybody!

Back in the Saddle

The annual Texas Music Educators Association Convention is happening February 9-11 in San Antonio. Last time we were there was just prior to the world shutting down for the pandemic, so we're eager to return and see everyone! We will be posted up in Booth 1168 (across the aisle from Pender's).

Texas All-State 5A Percussion Ensemble

Mark your calendars for the Texas All-State 5A Percussion Ensemble conducted by James Campbell! The ensemble will be performing a few Tapspace publications including Fuerza Negra (Francisco Perez) and Mayhem (Daniel Montoya Jr.) at the showcase concert on Saturday, February 11th, at 11:00 a.m. in Lila Cockrell Theatre. Be sure to check it out!

Fuerza Negra (Francisco Perez)


Fuerza Negra (Francisco Perez)

A medium-difficulty percussion ensemble tune with an unstoppable groove. Written as both a nod to the commissioning ensemble and as a show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Mayhem (Daniel Montoya Jr.)

A high-energy work for a large percussion ensemble written as a loving but atypical ode to the composer's newborn baby girl.

Lost & Found

Students lose music like it's their job. (Well, maybe not just students ... guilty as charged!)

Don't fret, though. You can always order replacement parts (in either downloadable or physical format) directly from our website. Read more about how to replace your lost music/files below!
