'Chatter with the angels' and 'Who's that' are arrangements of traditional repertoire ; all others by the composer.
Book of percussion pieces written particularly for primary school-age children to encourage them to use the interactive percussion Sound Garden at Willows Gardens [in Thuringowa, North Queensland], however it may be freely adapted to any site. The most obvious venue will be the classroom.
