This stately grade 1.5 piece uses open string double stops and pizzicato to achieve its regal sound. The use of low second finger is reinforced for violins and violas. Suitable for advanced elementary or middle school string players, it is fun to play no matter how many years of experience a player has. All parts in this confidence building selection remain in first position with easy rhythms. Students love playing the minor melodies and are invigorated by playing the open string double stops which drive the piece. Clearly a winner!
