AbstractJohn J. Heney (1902-78), percussionist(1926-31) and xylophone soloist (1931) with the John Philip Sousa Band, composed, arranged, and transcribed five solos for xylophone solo and accompaniment. Only three of these works were published. Of the published works, none is currently in print. Through extensive score study and critical analysis of existing recordings, this study examines and documents the performance practice of John Heney's xylophone solos. The works are also assessed for their overall value in relation to today's music performers and teachers. John J. Heney's life as a performer, music educator, and teacher is documented in an in-depth biography, with particular attention given to his years with the John Philip Sousa Band.
