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

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 &hellip Continue reading »

The Frog in the Bog – String Group Easy Violin Trio

Copy Me

This is a really simple open string and 1st finger song I wrote for my beginner students to play in their String Group. I played first, and had them all copy me.  I gave them all the score (not separate parts) so that they could learn to follow along what was being played. I had them sing &hellip Continue reading »

Here’s my arrangement of Ode to Joy &hellip Continue reading »

After spending 5 mins tuning everyone up, we started. Our first song: G Major Scale simple Those who wish to &hellip Continue reading »

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’. The music is written by Randy Edelman, &hellip Continue reading »

Yodel Away

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
