The String Riffs Volume One Flex-Pack Bundle includes String Riffs Volume One Flex-Pack and String Riffs Volume One Accompaniment MP3s.

String Riffs Volume One Flex-Pack offers 3 levels of performance parts:

  • Part A-Tune
  • Part B-Challenge
  • Part C-Open strings or basic notes
  • A few pieces even have a solo part for your go-getters or for you to accompany your students.

The pieces sound like an orchestra and students have music to fit their level of learning. Start from the open strings and build up to your challenge players. The Finale MP3 for Volume One Flex-Pack uses the same piano part from our Original Volume One, but has A, B, C, and D parts represented as violinists.

The response to the Flex-Pack has been huge! You may send the files digitally to your students, you may record them playing and also present the music on-line. Please do not copy the score or share with your fellow string teachers.

The String Riffs Volume One Flex-Pack introduces entry-level beginners to note names, arco and pizzicato, dynamics, string crossings, syncopation, reading and good posture. Open strings and sound effects teach counting, shifting, bow technique, and the elements of rhythm. Concept maps help teachers align lesson plans. Levels 0.5 – 1 for string orchestra.

This volume coordinates perfectly with String Riffs Volume One – Piano/Conductor and String Riffs Student Volume One.
