(Steps to Success for String Orchestra)
Terry Shade & Jeremy Woolstenhulme - Neil A. Kjos Music Company
Publisher Desc.  "String Basics: Steps to Success for String Orchestra" is a comprehensive method for beginning string classes. Through technical exercises, music from around the world, classical themes by the masters, and original compositions, students will learn to play their stringed instruments in an orchestra. Step-by-step sequences of instruction will prove invaluable as students learn to hold their instruments and bows, finger new notes, count different rhythms, read music notation, and more. Clear, full-color photographs and fingering chart diagrams introduce playing positions, bow holding and bowing, and left-hand finger patterns. Duets, rounds, trios, and orchestra arrangements develop students' ability to play in an ensemble setting right away, thereby strengthening ear training and intonation. The "Interactive Practice Studio" is a unique downloadable resource containing a wealth of supporting biographical, historical, and cultural information: photos; maps; artwork; audio samples; video and more. "Video Lessons" offer students and teachers a comprehensive, step-by-step look at concepts taught throughout the method. Lessons are taught in a middle school classroom setting by the authors; the lessons show special consideration for each instrument, and one lesson is specially devoted to shifting for the bass. "Theory & Composition" offers students hands-on experience to better understand what they see and hear by actually learning to notate music and compose simple melodic lines. The Teacher's Edition provides successful teaching strategies, divided into two categories: "Performance" and "Musical Understanding." "Guidelines" and "Guideposts" assist in giving students a comprehensive experience in orchestra. Also available to teachers is the "Interactive Teacher's Studio," with even more helpful tips and strategies.
