Quick Overview

Janice Tucker Rhoda's remarkable and innovative series, The ABCs of Strings has had a major effect on the way stringed instruments are being taught. Now, with the help of experienced composer/arranger Andrew Balent, she has brought her carefully graded approach to ensemble playing. The ABCs of String Orchestra progresses in a gradual and logical manner, making it an ideal collection for introducing young students to the challenges of playing in a group. The 21 selections in the collection include familiar classical, popular and folk melodies, as well as original tunes specifically designed to facilitate the development of the left-hand and bowing techniques. From Alouette and Frère Jacques to Hatikvah, Jingle Bells and O Pastorzinho the books contain a wealth of recognizable (and multicultural) material that will be fun to learn and play.
