Here's a real confidence booster for your youngest ensemble. Beethoven's familiar "Ode to Joy" is scored for use early in the first year of instruction. Ample doubling reinforces the form while difficult rhythms are non-existent. Every section has a chance with the melody during the arrangement. This one will make them sound huge!
