  • Lunchtime Suite | Andy Meyers

    £34.99

     

    'When pupils are struggling with tricky rhythms, I often suggest lyrics to help them remember how the music goes. Food is always on my mind at lunchtime rehearsals and the movements of this suite are inspired by school dinners!'
    This piece works very well as a trio for two violins and cello, however the addition of any of the other parts expands the harmony and fills the textures.The third violin part uses only open strings and first finger so that players in the early stages of learning can still gain experience of ensemble playing.

    Players: Variable, from trio to full junior string orchestra
    Duration: 6' 02″ over three movements
    Difficulty: Easy
    Audio Sample: Lunchtime Suite
