A simple warmup song for string orchestra. A great way to start training and preparing young ears for tuning. Includes both a major and minor version. I also use it to work on tone and string crossings. The parts include fingerings. On upper strings I used a low 4 instead of a high so that the 3rd finger is consistently in the same spot.
Includes scores and parts as well as play along MP3 files with a fun drum track. My students really enjoy playing it along with this track.
The audio tracks are a composite of:
- a piano sound for clear attacks
- a synthesizer sound for sustain
- a plucked lower string sound
- a drum track
- 1 measure count in
Score & Parts for each version
Three audio files for each version at three tempi.
