Composition #5--C/E-string Notes


Composition 5 C/E string notes, tempo, dynamic for elementary orchestra

This was the first year that I was able to carve out enough time to include this fifth composition for my beginners.  There's always so much going on at the end of the year with the spring concert and wrapping up for the school year that it has been tough to fit everything in that I'd like to do.  Instead of having students hand in their compositions so I could type them up and include them in one more packet of compositions, this time students simply performed their composition for their small group during the last week of orchestra.  Students announced the title as well as the tempo and dynamic markings before performing.

Students were excited when they found out they could use any note from any string, and they had fun selecting dynamic and tempo markings to make their piece exactly what they envisioned.

Composition #5 (C/E-string notes; includes tempo/dynamics):


As always, feel free to take and adjust for your students!
