Bags of Style takes a fantastic musical journey through ten centuries of time, starting in the 12th century with an energetic stamping dance, and arriving at the 21st century for a 'game of chance' that you can alter simply by tossing a coin. Pieces are gently progressive and written by leading string pedagogue, Mary Cohen. Excellent for grade 2-3 players.
