Fantastic repertoire for fun that also builds reading, listening, and ensemble skills! Intended for first and second-year players, this creative collection presents seven original rounds, each written from the scrambled notes of a traditional tune that students are challenged to identify. Whether in the classroom or on the concert program, the mystery delights one and all. Designed for maximum flexibility, these pieces may be performed with as few as four like instruments, or with as many instruments as desired, divided into four groups. Upper strings can be combined, or lower strings can be combined. For an ensemble that contains both upper and lower strings, ensemble accompaniment parts have been provided. The score contains a reproducible piano accompaniment as well. With so many options for instrumentation, Seven Mystery Melodies offers a unique, easy-to-use collection for teachers and beginning string students.
