Ideal for a school string ensemble or intermediate group, also an upbeat, cheerful and popular song to add to quartet pads, sure to be recognised from Dreamworks' Shrek 2.

The piece will improve confidence with slurring and use of  4th fingers in all upper string parts, potentially providing a useful discussion point as to when to use or not use 4th finger. Sharing of the tune in different octaves round the parts encourages confidence in tune playing and phrasing and the recurrence of strong, recognisable riffs within parts  combined with homo-rhythmic harmonies in other parts provides a useful anchor to hesitant sight readers.

Whilst it can all be played in 1st position, violin 1s wanting a challenge will find that most of the part fits nicely under the hand in third position, potentially improving students awareness of 3rd position intonation.

The viola part is all playable by a single viola comfortable with double stopping, or multiple violas playing divisi.

I design my pieces to enable teachers to reinforce techniques learnt in one-to-one or group lessons. I try to pick modern and popular repertoire that will appeal to children or teenagers. I hope that this arrangement of Counting Crow's 'Accidentally in Love' achieves this.

The score and set of parts for my arrangement. There is no piano reduction at the moment.

Please review my work, if you have the time.
