series guidelines

string explorer | Grade 1–2½

Correlated with the units of the String Explorer method, these pieces

provide a variety of teaching opportunities to implement and

fortify the skills learned by young string players. Each composition

and arrangement is suitable for a young orchestra’s first concert

performances, with parts that are clearly bowed and fingered to make

teaching simple and enjoyable. Selections include a Violin III (Viola,

treble clef) part as well as optional piano accompaniment.

strictly strings | Grade 1–2

The Strictly Strings Orchestra Series provides stimulating arrangements

for first- and second-year string players that reinforce newly learned

notes, bowings, key signatures, rhythmic patterns, and musical terms

and symbols. The selections in this series cover a variety of musical

styles and periods. All arrangements correlate with Strictly Strings,

our popular string method, but may also be used in conjunction with

other instructional methods. Each arrangement includes an optional

piano accompaniment and a Violin III (Viola, treble clef) part.

string orchestrA | Grade 1–4

The grand tradition of Highland/Etling continues in this exciting

series of original compositions and arrangements for string orchestra.

Written by many of the leading composers of school orchestra music,

each selection is carefully graded and edited to provide the maximum

educational and musical benefit to your students. Each work is

chosen for its musicality, uniqueness and appropriateness to the

developmental level of students. From well-crafted arrangements of

symphonic masterworks to exciting original compositions, this series

provides a wealth of musical materials for the school orchestra.

string AlternAtives | Grade 1–3½

The String Alternatives Series blazes new pathways in string

performance music by providing authentic-sounding compositions

and arrangements of the very best repertoire in fiddling, jazz,

mariachi, Latin, rock and world music. Each piece in the series presents

a truly unique and broad learning experience by integrating facets of

our eclectic American cultural heritage. Elements such as slides and

ornaments are notated for a more stylistically correct performance.

When appropriate, optional percussion, piano, and other rhythm

instruments are included for greater authenticity. Designed to be

played by string students who are experienced or new to alternative

styles, this series will motivate students at all levels.

First philhArmonic | Grade 1–2

Specially designed with the young musician in mind, the First

Philharmonic Series has everything to make your students’ first full

orchestra experience an enjoyable and successful one. Easy-to-read

parts are well bowed and fingered with all measures numbered,

keeping within practical ranges for all instruments (string parts in first

position, with occasional optional upper octaves for more advanced

players). With doublings carefully considered for the orchestra with

less-than-full instrumentation, these orchestrations sound like the

original by retaining the integrity of the composer’s original intent.

Full orchestrA | Grade 3–4

This series provides challenging, yet very playable arrangements for

the full orchestra. A variety of musical styles is represented, with an

emphasis on giving students the opportunity to experience first-hand

the wonders of the symphony orchestra and its literature. Carefully

Series provides orchestra directors with superb concert selections to

bossA Azul, Grade 3

by Bert Ligon

(00-31622) F $55.00

A great change of pace and the perfect

level for your intermediate group!

Bossa Azul (uh-ZOOL = blue) sounds like

sitting in the tropical shade with a cool

Caribbean breeze. Melodic material

appears in all parts and is designed for

fun and successful performances. An

improvisation section is included where

Fourth dimension, Grade 3

by Randy Sabien

(00-31623) F $47.00

As heard on the composer’s recordings,

this eerie jazz tune will challenge and

thrill the players! Based on a twelve-bar

blues progression with a twist, each

section takes a solo. Solos are written

out or may be improvised. Encourage

the players to use special effects, as in

another dimension. It’s okay for a variety

of sounds to emerge! (3:35)

cd 1, trAck 45

tcheFuncte shuFFle, Grade 3½

by Tim Aucoin

(00-31616) F $55.00

Feel the relaxed energy of a hot afternoon

while the gators bask on the banks of

the Tchefuncte River in Louisiana! This

swingin’ feel-good jazz shuffle features

a catchy melody over a Blues in G with

a middle section reminiscent of Count

Basie taking it home. Written out solos for

violin, viola and cello are included with

backgrounds for all sections. (3:50)

cd 1, trAck 46

don’t get Around much

Anymore, Grade 3½

by Duke Ellington and Bob Russell,

arr. Robert Gardner

(00-31621) F $60.00

Big band jazz translates very well for

strings and this cool arrangement stays

true to the style of the original. Most

sections share the melody, with the

others playing the famous call-andresponse

accompaniment, and all but

the cellos remain in first position. Two

solos are written out for each instrument,

with chord changes and back-up parts

provided to allow students to create their

own solos, encouraging improvisation.

This will make an upbeat and distinctive

addition to any concert program. (4:55)

by Ludwig van Beethoven, arr. Richard Meyer

(00-31612) F $57.00

Carefully arranged with the young

orchestra in mind, this version retains all

of the charm and color of Beethoven’s

original. Students will develop their lyrical

playing skills while learning to “listen

for the tune” as it moves from section

to section. A wonderful way to develop

proper balance in a symphonic setting,

and a great introduction to music that

invokes moods and pictures. (5:20)

grAnde processionAl For An

AcAdemic occAsion, Grade 3

by Alexandre Guilmant, arr. Rick England

(00-31613) F $67.00

Are you looking for a big, bombastic

opener or closer for your next symphony

orchestra concert? Do you need a

contrasting piece to a delicate Debussy

impression and want to stay “French”?

Are you too pooped to “Pomp”? This

composition, in a bold march style with

a short fugal exposition in the middle,

will work for you. Your students will enjoy

the opportunity for their sections to

shine and your audience will remember

the energetic build to the final climactic

chords. (5:30)

cd 1, trAck 50

lAke dAnce, Grade 3½

by William G. Harbinson

(00-31615) F $67.00

Recurring themes within contrasting

sections, ranging from the majestic to a

spirited dance, will delight audiences and

players alike. Mixed meters, asymmetrical

meters and the playful development

of previous motives characterize the

development section, leading into a

rousing finale. Great contemporary

composition! (6:02)

great music


music literacy for upper elementary,


middle school & high school

by Daniel Anker, Carol Ponder & Donna Santman • Preface by Eric Booth

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, Music From the Inside Out is a cinematic

exploration of the magic and mystery of music through the stories, passion, and

artistry of the 105 musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Bring the excitement

of the film into the classroom through a newly developed curriculum that

engages students in reading, writing, listening and talking about all kinds of

music and offers students the opportunity to compose their own works. The

curriculum is intended for grades four and up and is constructed so that each

lesson may be used individually or as part of the complete curriculum. The

accompanying CD includes a wonderful selection of music examples for the

classroom. The full-length movie as well as a special supplemental teaching DVD

that includes excerpts not shown in the theatrical release are available.
