Young cellists (and their teachers and parents) will have fun taking this musical promenade through the zoo. Animals from A to Z help young learners to master cello techniques and skills in a spirit of fun. Tiny ants form caravans with minuscule footsteps, a lion roars in two-part counterpoint, a seal frolics in a liquid 6/8, and two little donkeys draw attention with daring glissandos. The enclosed piano accompaniment contributes with a wide range of sounds that guarantee fun in lessons and applause during performances! Not for an absolute beginner, but good for a year one or two student.
The theme from this award-winning score was originally recorded by Joshua Bell with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Arranged here by the composer for violin and piano accompaniment. Intermediate/Advanced.
