Janice Tucker Rhoda's remarkable and innovative series, The ABCs of Strings has had a major effect on the way stringed instruments are being taught. Now, with the help of experienced composer/arranger Andrew Balent, she has brought her carefully graded approach to ensemble playing. The ABCs of String Orchestra progresses in a gradual and logical manner, making it an ideal collection for introducing young students to the challenges of playing in a group. The 21 selections in the collection include familiar classical, popular and folk melodies, as well as original tunes specifically designed to facilitate the development of the left-hand and bowing techniques. From Alouette and Frere Jacques to Hatikvah, Jingle Bells and O Pastorzinho the books contain a wealth of recognizable (and multicultural) material that will be fun to learn and play.

  • October 08, 2008 Three Part Concert Gems

    For the beginning string orchestra, these short pieces are gems. Included are obvious favorites along with arrangements of classics and styles. The three part instrumentation creates pleasant harmonies without overwhelming young players. They. (and you), will surely be motivated by successful rehearsal and performance.
