Imagine a cheery tune Santa’s elves might sing while making Christmas toys! This fun polka for beginners stays on the D and A strings, uses only the first finger pattern, and is aimed at developing dexterity and string-crossing skills in young musicians. Optional percussion parts add the workshop sound effects, but students will really enjoy the catchy melodies that start quietly and build to a rowdy finish.
