Put some rock-style fun in your next young string orchestra concert with this light-hearted composition, Mr. Turtle's got the Walk. In the key of D major and staying exclusively in first position, this joyful arrangement follows the classic blues chord progression and might be the most fun music your orchestra has performed all year. Easily playable by second year string orchestras, most first year orchestras would also be able to perform this composition at an end-of-the-year concert. As a bonus, an optional cello part is included to cover the bass part for those young orchestras who don’t have basses in their group. Another bonus is that this composition may also be performed in swing style, instead of rock. Easy.

    From the composer: "I apologize that the viola part was initially published in treble clef. That was an oversight on my part and I don't know how it slipped by me. I have corrected that oversight and the correct parts should be available here soon. if anyone has purchased...

    the version with the incorrect viola part, email me at and I will send you the correct viola part. Thank you for performing my music!"

    I ordered Mr Turtle's Got the Walk for my beginner string ensemble, as it was fun and catchy! I am looking forward to getting started as I know my students will enjoy it, however when I received the music I was disappointed to see that the viola part was...

    written in the treble clef. My beginner violists will not be able to read this. It would be much more beneficial to include a viola part and a violin 3 part so all types of string ensembles will be able to enjoy this piece.
