Your students will enjoy playing this traditional Scottish air, beautifully arranged for string orchestra by Michael Hopkins. This is a great piece for developing expression and legato bow changes. This is also a great piece for introducing students to ornamentation used in Scottish folk music. The piece begins with a violin solo, and also features short solos for violin and viola at the end. All parts are playable in first position, with some shifting to third position for double bass. Piano, guitar and flute parts are included. (4:20).
