Turning Suzuki pieces into Halloween Songs was fun. We played Twinkle Twinkle Little Witch by making our first fingers low on the A and the E strings. We played Go Tell the Goblin by playing B flat on the A string and F natural on the E string in Go Tell Aunt Rhody. It made a spooky impression! It's fun to play tremolo bowing on Song of the Wind and turn it into Song of the Spooks. We turned May Song into October Song by playing low 1's and low 2's throughout the piece. Everybody knew exactly which piece to play when Miss Ruth said, "A piece about Dancing Scary Old Ladies...." Witches' Dance by Paganini of course! Here are a few of the great people who came to Halloween group in their costumes:
The short and the long of it, we all play a mean fiddle!!
The Book 3-5 Group swelled to 12 people counting Miss Ruth. In this group we practiced our Telemann Concerto for 4 Violins that is one of our featured numbers at the Christmas Concerts. Please enjoy listening to the audio files of this fun piece!
