Product Description

From Gustav Holst's The Planets is "Thaxted" (from "Jupiter") in Eb major. We all know that flats are not the violinist's favorite so here is an assignment to help learn those low fingerings!

The notes are in red and orange for the planet theme but mostly to keep the student's attention!! It always gets the attention of mine! They love it!!!

Thank you in advance and

Best Wishes on your teaching and playing!


You'll find a wealth of violin solos at my TPT store!

Be sure you have "color" selected on your printer settings! :)

*Music Teacher Life Hack: After the student has practiced the song, turn the paper where they can't see it, and ask "What key is this song in? How many flats are in the key signature?" Have the student play the E Flat Major Scale before they play the song.
