String Play for All offers arrangements of the great classics for violin and string ensembles of mixed levels and abilities.Your students will love this short, fun arrangement, which introduces scordatura, and contains fun lyrics as well. A Halloween favorite, this piece highlights the tritone. Beginning violin parts tune the "e string" down to "e-flat," involving only open strings. The optional advanced violin includes an optional "sul g" fingering to challenge your more advanced students. There are five violin parts, viola and an optional piano part.  Four copies of each violin part have been included. This arrangement can be learned in one 45-minute group class, so have fun with your students!
