Take your students on a desert caravan in this fun and exciting piece written to introduce low first-finger notes (E-flat and B-flat). All students-even your more advanced players-will love the Far Eastern harmonic minor sound, complete with bouncing cello/bass accompaniment and parts for tambourine and finger cymbals. Very mature sounding, yet simple. A great teaching piece! This title is available in SmartMusic.

    Strings get into this ethnic piece that paints a picture of riding through the Sahara on camel back, with the tambourine and finger cymbals feature and eastern mode. Perfect for introducing flats to strings.
