The captivating arrangements explore catchy syncopated rhythms and playing styles such as plucking and tremolo ... All tempi are within the grasp of most beginners, and the 2nd part, while only using open strings and the 1st finger, is not restricted in its harmonies. The deceptively simple piano accompaniment uses a range of harmonies, increasing a student's musical experience and adding zest to the ensemble. The parts can easily be arranged for any mix of string instruments, including as a solo performance. Have your students enjoy music for life by sharing these enchanting musical treats with them when they're young. Melissa Franks, Stringendo (AUSTA), No. 2, 2008
