Not to be confused with the nautical term "Ahoy!," the phrase "All hands hoay!" actually means all hands on deck for some serious work! In other words, string players, it's time to get those fingers moving with this simple, rugged, and modal seafaring melody. Written in the often-inaccessible key of F-sharp natural minor, this fun musical pirate's tale will have your students' little fingers stretching nonstop. The melody is evenly passed around, with a middle section featuring your violas and a jaunty contrapuntal ending. Younger orchestras will have a blast with this exciting original, All Hands Hoay! by Anthony Granata, as they get right down to work!
