Rhythmic energy and exciting harmonies make this fun and spooky tune an instant favorite of young string students. Without using any of the more difficult or complicated finger patterns, this original piece serves as an excellent introduction to flat key signatures. The key of G minor allows for solid intonation to be maintained because the ensemble can rely on the open G and D strings as a pitch foundation. The melody gets shared by every section of the orchestra and can be taught to all sections simultaneously. (2:40)

    "Critter Crawl" is a great piece to play in junior high. We played it this year. I can just imagine big caterpillars crawling in front of me. Thanks to Carol J. Johnson for writing this piece.
