A fun piece for developing string players that reinforces the practice of leaving fingers down, "anchored" to the fingerboard. With a nautical flavor, it explores staccato and legato articulation along with striking dynamic contrast. Low second fingers are found only in the first violin part, and fourth fingers are encouraged in both the violin and viola parts. The powerful melodic material is given to all sections for a dramatic concert selection.

Get your young string players in formation with their bows at the ready! This exciting Grade 1 selection provides plenty of tutti playing to keep everyone on solid ground and uses only the basic fingerings found in your favorite first-year method book.

This set also provides flexible instrumentation for those directors who have too few or too many violas by providing both violin 3 (viola substitute) and viola 2 (violin 2 substitute) parts.

The harmonic beauty and seamless polyphony of Bach's second Brandenburg Concerto has been retained in this very true string orchestra adaptation of the original. The flute, oboe, and trumpet solos have been reassigned to the principal players in the violin, viola, and cello sections. Though shortened to work better in the educational setting, very few concessions were made in the level of difficulty. All parts are given energetic lines and interesting material to challenge students in their mastery of the authentic Baroque playing style.

The music of The Highlander tells the story of loss, remembrance, and celebration. Written as a tribute to a young violist, the viola part remains prominent throughout. Three distinct sections in C major, A minor, and G major offer interest to all sections of the orchestra. Following a stately opening, the lively middle section is based on the Scottish fiddle tune Highlander’s Farewell and follows standard repetitions for fiddle tunes (ABABAB form) with increasing excitement and tempo. This melody is bookended with the original opening lament, concluding with an energetic reel that drives it to its close.

In this exciting multi-level arrangement, orchestra students can experience the thrill of Beethoven's original symphony.

This abbreviated version is long enough to highlight some of the best moments from the final movement, but short enough to use as a grand finale for any pyramid concert. Optional high school-level wind and brass parts are highly encouraged but not required for performance. A great selection to motivate and inspire young string students.

A bit of Irish lore woven into a mystical piece for string orchestra. This original work is based on the story of St. Ghobnait, also known as the patron saint of Ballyvourney. According to legends heard in County Galway, this peaceful sixth-century beekeeper was forced by a family feud to flee to the island of Inishere, following a vision to eventually settle in Ballyvourney, County Cork. St. Ghobnait was remembered for healing the sick with the honey she harvested. The faster section of the composition represents her flight, with calm years of rest on either side reflected in contrasting sections.

The winner of the 2008 Texas Orchestra Directors Association composition contest!  This American tour de force has shades of Copland mixed with exciting fiddling motives and themes fit for a Hollywood western.  The composer describes it: "The Snake River flows through Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and I tried to capture some of its grandeur in the music.  The 'stomp' comes from the heavy hoedown feel in cut time. It's written in a rondo form, and its themes have a familiar style that is easy to capture.  Students will love the fact that each string part is interesting and unique."
