Spider Spray – an easy violin piece to introduce first finger B flat

Posted by on May 23, 2018

A student of mine composed this.  I think it’s hilarious!  He was telling me about a spider adventure – obviously the spider met with an unfortunate end, but it was a great excuse to compose a song!

It’s probably a first grade easy song – with a D minor 5 note pattern on the last line, along with the B flat scattered through.  But there’s a surprise with a scritchy scratchy bow – we found it best to slide your bow up the fingerboard, which creates a bit of a horrible sound…kind of like a spider dying via spider spray!
