Looking for a piece that's fun to play but still educationally sound? Try Sword Dance on your next concert. Students will love this high-energy tune from the Renaissance era. The piece starts with a presentation of the tune in the low strings that continues in the violins. It is then played antiphonally, followed by a pizzicato variation that concludes in an exuberant, fast-paced ending. Correlated with String Explorer, Book 1, Unit 12. This title is available in SmartMusic.

    when I played this in 5th grade, everyone just went crazy when we played it. It is a ver fun piece. This piece is acully very Very much the same as a Dance from WARLOCK'S CAPRIOL SUITE.
