The Low Down
"The Low Down", composed by Kevin Sluder, is a great application of the G major scale for young string players. The piece stays entirely in the range of the lowest octave of G major and has a flowing "in 2" feel when played more uptempo.
This very easy work is made to sound mature with a variety of musical techniques, mixing unison writing with richly harmonic sections, staccato and legato playing, and imitative sections, making "The Low Down" a perfect piece to show off your orchestra's advancing musicianship.
