Your bass section emulates a walrus sleeping (in A minor) and waking from his slumber. His alarm clock is the first violins and their harsh trill. Basses use half, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions, set up logically and with fingerings provided. Violins and violas learn high and low chromatic fingerings and will improve their note-reading skills. Violins also have a flashy glissando into third position. Tremolo and left-hand pizzicato are introduced before the walrus completes his clumsy waltz around the room and falls gently back to sleep.
