This high energy, rhythmically driven piece is fun to play for any grade level and any size group. It features easy rhythms and techniques such as detaché bowing, tremolo, accents, pizzicato, and a few slurs. Written in the key of A minor, the use of low 2nd fingers for upper strings is reinforced. The viola part doubles the violin 2 part. With students requesting to play it every day, this is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for both audiences and players!
