Wait Your Turn!
By Doug Spata
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
As the title implies, Wait Your Turn! is full of rhythmic challenges and surprises. Interlocking accompaniments and cadences are designed to help young musicians listen to themselves and each other simultaneously. Everyone gets a turn at the melodies, which contain counting and bowing challenges of their own. Drumset and piano accompaniment parts are included for additional support. Students and audiences will enjoy this piece for its light and breezy style, while orchestra teachers will value the essential musical skills that it encourages. This title is available in SmartMusic.
