Chins and Pins
By Richard Meyer
Highland/Etling String Explorer
It's a musical conversation between the Chins (violins and violas) and the Pins (cellos and basses)! Your beginning orchestra will love this simple yet fun piece that is perfect for their first "note-reading" concert. Students will learn the role of melody and accompaniment as one group's phrase is answered, always in contrary motion, by the second group. Frequent changes from arco to pizzicato will keep everyone on their toes! Uses only the notes of the D Major scale, and includes piano accompaniment and violin III parts.
