In this From the Top at Carnegie Hall gallery, watch two video segments about 16-year-old Joshua Jones.
In the performance video segment, Jones plays "Rhythm Song" on the marimba. Listen for the different rhythms in the piece.
In the profile video segment, visit Jones at home in Chicago where he describes his love for percussion and the marimba. Whether he's accompanying the gospel choir in his church or playing with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Percussion Scholarship Group, Joshua hears rhythms all around him.
You can see the full episode and a more complete lesson plan at the From the Top at Carnegie Hall Web site.
