Sunchasers, Tanner Otto String Orchestra Grade 1
This animated piece with simple, catchy melodies introduces the tonality of A major without any extended finger patterns. The piece is perfect for working on staccato bowing and cut time. The lighthearted A theme makes way for the energetic and driving B and C sections. Written in rondo form, it follows a group of friends on their summer adventure. Try having students write their own narration to fit the music!
