        Marimba Beat: Jingchen Sun

        In the performance video segment from From the Top at Carnegie Hall, 17-year-old percussionist Jingchen Sun plays a marimba, a percussion instrument with a fascinating history. The piece she plays, "Ultimatum I," is by German composer and percussionist Nebojsa Zivkovic.

        In the profile video segment, Jingchen tells how she came to study at the Juilliard School in New York and why the marimba is important to her. She also describes the sacrifice that her father made so that she could own her own instrument and have more practice time outside of school.

        You can see the full episode and a more complete lesson plan at the From the Top at Carnegie Hall Web site.
