Tangerine Rag

By Richard Meyer

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/tangerine-rag-sheet-music/3526845?ac=1

Orchestra - Grade 1
Composed by Richard Meyer. String Orchestra. Strictly Strings Series. Conductor Score & Parts. 72 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.12995).

Item Number: AP.12995

This amazingly authentic-sounding work in the ragtime style is a great tool for teaching syncopation and ensemble precision. Full of fun and good spirits, it includes a clever part for woodblock (written in the 1st violin part) which can be played by a string student or added percussionist. For even more fun, the woodblock part can be divided up between a number of instruments (slide whistle, slapstick, etc.) for some hilarious effects. This work by Richard Meyer is a "must-do" for second- and third-year orchestras. (Grade 2 - Correlates with Strictly Strings Book 2, page 13).
