An old timer once told me, “blues is the roots – the rest is fruits.” Students studying alternative styles can’t play it enough. In addition to the expected 12 bar blues form, there’s a contrasting bridge for added variety.


About Creative Strings
This collection is designed to lead beginning to advanced students through their first experiences as improvisers.CreativeEach piece includes a “window” for improvising over written accompaniment with “starter licks” and other tips included right in the parts to prime their creative pumps.Flexible InstrumentationWith four intentionally redundant parts, these pieces can be performed by any combination of string instruments. No violas or cellos? No problem. All parts played by violins sounds great. Got 15 violins and 1 viola player? Have some of the violins double the viola part. The same goes for cello. The bass has one part. An optional piano part is also provided. Flexible instrumentation also enables teaching experiments such as trading parts for better understanding or playing the melody in the cellos and the bass line in the violins…License to make as many photocopies as you want!Scores: Primary Score, Violin Score, Viola Score, Cello ScoreParts: Violin (1- 4), Viola (1-4), Cello (1-4), Bass, Piano.
