Finally, an accessible piece for young string students with options to teach improvisation! Written by jazz composer and violinist Martin Norgaard, Calypso is based on rhythms and singable melodies inspired by music of the Caribbean. An optional solo section can be opened up to feature as many of your students as desired, and solo sheets are provided for all instruments to help teach basic elements of improvisation, along with an included sample solo. Optional drum set really adds to the Caribbean fun!

    My string orchestra has just performed this piece as part of a summer concert programme. The children in the group really enjoyed this catchy piece as there was interest in each part. The solos section was excellent with either a suggested solo or help with improvisation. My three soloists - violin...

    , cello and bass really liked the opportunity to shine. I Would highly recommend this piece.
