This energetic, modern-sounding selection was written to improve your students' reading of notes on the G string and is focused on this often-neglected lower range of the instruments. The minor and modal harmonies, hard-driving rhythms, and stunning dynamic contrasts all combine to give the piece a primal and primitive sound that students will love. A slow, introspective middle section provides a dramatic contrast to the piece's initial surge and will help develop bow control and steady pizzicato pulse. G Force by Richard Meyer is perfect for festival or contest! (2:50)
