“Floating Snowflakes” is a wonderful Christmas arrangement for Beginning String Orchestra, with an original Christmas melody, using very easy grace notes, which is then merged with the Christmas carol “The First Novel”.
This composition is written for young string players who are beginning to experience the joy of playing in an orchestra. The arrangement includes a Violin III part as well as a piano part which can be used for rehearsal or performance or both.
As is always found in Kantata Studios compositions, “Floating Snowflakes” for Beginning String Orchestra comes with the Scale of D Major (Key of the piece) plus rhythm and melody patterns taken from the actual composition. This is a practical, fun way to begin work on this piece. Begin the warmup with the scale of D Major, then add the rhythms from the piece.
