Belwin Beginning String Orchestra
As soon as your young string players have learned their "low 2" finger patterns, they are ready for this catchy teaching tune. Written in the attention-grabbing key of A minor, this mystical piece reinforces the "neighborly" half-step relationship between E-F on the D string and B-C on the A string. Every section gets the melody, a winner with the kids, and you'll like how each section learns to play their half steps more in tune. A great supplement to your method book, and also a successful crowd-pleaser on your next concert!
