Simple Song of Keys is designed as a daily warm-up routine to teach students to be comfortable, and in tune, when performing in various major keys. Despite the fact the most music for first and second year performers is written in GM and DM, these can be especially difficult keys for violists (requiring extreme third finger stretches of smaller hands) and cellists (with second and fourth finger extensions). And string players often fear the less familiar keys employing flats because they must avoid the safety of open strings. Yet these same keys often fit more comfortably under the smaller hand. The pieces may be played individually to prepare for the key of the repertoire being played that day, or in broad sequence to learn to move from key to key.
