String It Together
The String It Together Music Series means Fun for Beginning String Orchestra. This series of books is dedicated to the beginning player’s early orchestral experience. Each volume is arranged in order of increasing difficulty and includes a Conductor’s Score and Full Set of Parts. Additional parts are also separately available for Violin I, II & III, Viola, Cello and Bass along with SmartMusic Audio Files.
