Clap Your Hands, Everybody
By Bob Cerulli
Belwin Beginning String Orchestra
Get the whole room clapping! This fun piece is designed to let the director interact with the audience and give the students, parents, and grandparents an opportunity to participate in the program with the ensemble. It has a blues feel and the director could turn this into an impromptu lesson on dynamics, the blues, or the different sounds of the strings: pizzicato, arco, and tremolo.
