The introduction imitates the sound of a train coming down the tracks. The piece maintains the same energy level throughout, and all parts are given interesting material. Along with an added optional violin 3 (viola) part, the piano adds some color that does not appear in the string parts to help fill out the ensemble sound. All aboard! (1:42).

About Real Music for Beginning Strings

This series includes novelty pieces which are appropriate within the first several months of instruction. Violin 2 parts tend to double the viola, so you don't need to split up your violin section to cover the parts. All pieces come with a piano part to add musical support. Grade 1 - 1.5
