Sound Innovations for Strings
Here is the perfect first-year repertoire! Favorite beginning tunes are arranged in a novelty setting that makes them tons of fun and reinforces right-arm technique. Travel through various bowing skills as you sing along to this traditional favorite. Imagine singing and playing this---the bows on the bus go stop, stop, stop, go back and forth, slur the notes, and cross the strings! Each skill is sung, played, and used in a folk tune. The arrangement includes "The Wheels on the Bus," "Long, Long Ago," "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "Go Tell Aunt Rhody," and "Lightly Row."
