Playstrings is an ideal introduction to orchestral playing for young string players. With interesting compositions in accessible arrangements. This is the full score for the lively and playful Circus Comes To Town.
Easy music for string groups, Playstrings provides an enjoyable and varied repertoire for young string orchestras, carefully structured in two levels. The ‘Easy’ level rarely exceeds Grade 2 in difficulty with most parts playable in first position, while the ‘Moderately Easy’ level includes some parts to around Grade 3 standard.
All the works in the series are available in full score or sets of individual instrumental parts and alternative options to fit with players available. There are over 30 terrific titles covering a wide range of styles, including fabulous classical pieces, superb folk tunes and wonderful Christmas collections.
Fantastic suite of music comprising sections representing circus acts interspersed with a fanfare theme representing the ringmaster.
I used this with a group of students from Y4 to Y7 ranging from no grade to Grade 3 standard.
This was an exciting piece of music showing pupils the full range of techniques which can be used with strings, pizzicato, glissando, col legno, etc.
Although the note range is of an easy standard there were challenges connected with timing/counting/time signature changes etc. Anónimo
