Sheet Music

Vivace Orchestra A

Presto Orchestra B

Concertino Orchestra C

Beginning Orchestra D 

For the Beginning Orchestra, please choose the part which will suit your child best, whether the original part or the simplified.  Just print your part and dive right in.

Love One Another:   Violins choose either violin part.  Viola and cello play as written.
If your child doesn’t play these notes yet, you may choose the “Choir Part” which is mostly open strings and fits with the melody just fine.  You can teach it to your child by rote using the letter names at the bottom of the sheet. Just play two bows for each letter.
 
Rock Candy: Violins choose melody or harmony if your child can play it.  Melody uses only opens and first fingers.  Viola and cello play harmony.
 
If your child cannot learn one of the parts, there is an open string (mostly) to teach him/her by rote.  The small letters are quarter notes; the large letters are half notes.  A plus above the note means pluck the open string with one of the left hand fingers. I find 3rd is strongest, but it doesn’t matter.  At the end, repeat back to the bracketed part,  and then end at the “FINE.” 

Practice Excerpts

Seating Auditions will be held on Monday June 3 at 8:00 a.m. for Orchestra A and 8:30 for Orchestra B. Excerpts will be taken from lists below. Please work on this music at home in the next three weeks, and ask your private teacher for help. Try to learn it all, but have the parts below very well-learned.
