First Things First for Strings
First Things First: Elementary Level Ensembles. By Robert S. Frost. Published by Kjos.
First Things First is a collection of traditional folk songs, classical themes, rounds, and original pieces representing over ten countries and styles from around the world. The compositions are arranged to be extremely versatile in meeting the needs of younger beginners in an elementary level string orchestra. Each instrument has the melody line as well as an additional harmony line. By using all the parts, a string orchestra is achieved. With the addition of the piano, any size string class can successfully perform these selections.
