Looking for fun arrangements you can perform with all your Suzuki chamber groups or school string ensembles? Students will be excited to play one of the modern classics of the holiday season: Carol of the Drum. This arrangement of The Carol of the Drum is for string quartet. The second violin plays the role of the drummer. While it is all open strings, the richochet and col legno bowing techniques requires a well-developed and flexible bow hand. The student should be able to play with the “standard” or “advanced” bow hold, with the thumb between the stick and the frog. The student should have completed “Perpetual Motion” in Book 1 of the Suzuki Violin School. The first violin part requires familiarity of third position. The viola part also extends to third position. I also have included an easier viola part, which remains in first position, and a Violin III part (first position) which can be used in place of the viola. The cello part stays within first position. The arrangement is designed so that it can be played by middle- or high-school students, as well as more advanced students. Students of all ages and levels will enjoy this arrangement. Full quartet score and one copy of each part are included.  .
