Beethoven Movie Theme Exerpt

I had this theme stuck in my mind since the beginning of the year and I wasn’t sure why, as I hadn’t watched the movie for many, many years.  ‘Beethoven’ is about a family who ends up with a very cheeky, loveable and protective Saint Bernard named ‘Beethoven’.

For a bit of fun for my String Group, I wrote a Yodel song.  It’s very simple for 3 violins but we had fun trying to see how fast we could play it. Here is the score (it is only 3 pages, and should fit okay on a music stand): Yodel Away Feb 2014

Friday Night at the Movies Violin Trio

This violin trio is an original piece of mine.  I had the idea of dramatic movie themes, and taking my violin students on a movie journey during their Friday Night String Group.  This piece has been one of their absolute favourites so far.  We couldn’t get it quite up to speed on the night, but we &hellip Continue reading »

When You Wish Upon A Star violin trio

I wrote out this arrangement in September 2013 for my String Group.  It sounded great with the three parts! I haven’t included any fingering, but the top part does require some position work. When You Wish Upon a Star

‘Nimrod’ from the Enigma Variations for 4 Violins

I love this piece by Edward Elgar.  There is something so soothing about it, so moving.  It was also one of the last pieces the Athens Symphony Orchestra played after it was asked to shut down by their Government   So sad! I wrote out an arrangement for my String Group, for 4 violins. It’s not an easy &hellip Continue reading »
