Detailed Instrumentation: 
String Orchestra
This lovely traditional folk tune in 3/4 is a wonderful introduction to dotted quarter - eighth note rhythms. Beginning in G Major and modulating to D, it can be played all in first position. Everyone will get the melody and all parts are independent. Bowings are kept simple with nothing more than 2-note slurs.
