March of the Apprentices
by Eugenia Goldman
This upbeat string ensemble piece suitable for beginner orchestras is a perfect selection for the first orchestra performance. Written in D major, the piece introduces students to several common rhythmic patterns, including a simple syncopation, and features large print notation (with note names inside some of the notes) to facilitate note reading skills. String orchestra with optional rehearsal piano. Very easy. Available in digital or print format.
